Governor Okorocha Escapes Death As Bridge Collapsed Under His Convoy by 9jagirl4re(f): 4:29am On Mar 25, 2015
What could have been a major disaster was averted just by divine providence in Owerri, the Imo State capital when a pedestrian bridge built by Governor Rochas Okorocha at
Heroes’ Children’s Park, opposite Concorde Hotel, collapsed under the governor.

The incident, which happened when the governor stopped over on his way to the NUJ Governorship Debate to interact with some students of Development Comprehensive Secondary School, Owerri, who were around the park when he came, caused a stir among on-lookers and passers-by.
Trouble however started when the governor took the students up the bridge to teach and inspire them on how to become leaders.
No sooner had the governor started the teachings with the students when the bridge caved in with the iron bracing of the bridge cut under the weight of the governor and the students and the students panicked and started shouting “Jesus! Jesus!!”, while the governor feigned ignorance of the situation even as his security aides rounded the spot to help him down.

Our correspondent who was there reports that when the incident happened, the governor’s aides, especially the members of the security operatives, who were visibly shaken, started shouting to the students: “Jump out!, get down!, jump out!” and the students jumped out from the bridge and ran for dear.
In the midst of the melee, the governor said “we’re too many here, please jump down”.
Our reporter can report that this was the first time the bridge was being used since it was constructed two years ago by Governor Okorocha.

It would be recalled that Akachi Road Bridge and several buildings (including the multi-million naira Imo Film Academy, a new security gate being constructed behind the main entrance gate to the Government House; office complex being constructed in the Imo State university campus, Owerri as well Princess Hotel Okigwe) constructed by the governor in the state had collapsed raising questions about the standard of such projects.

Back down memory lane...

The Imo State Film academy, headed by Nollywood actress Nkiru Silvanus has collapsed. The building collapsed few days after it was commissioned by the state governor.

@ 9jagirl4re: I don't know where you got that first picture from, but I know it ISN'T a picture taken at the scene of the incident in Owerri.

I don't know what your intention is, but it takes nothing away from you if you present your facts objectively. No need to exaggerate.
Just in case you are wondering.....I am not a fan of Imo state governor, or any politician for that matter.

APC lies and deceit..

The general hospital buildings in Imo towns even with the ones in almost every local government areas are dilapidated. Why not rehabilitate and re-equip them. He decided to build brand new general hospitals and each one is on the main road so that people will see it. Even if the hospitals are in the bush, people will not use them because non of them is completed. So, this is the type of project you will get from this government and people think that he is doing well. Come to the state capital, Owerri you have so many conference centers. What is he even doing with conference centers? These are not priority projects for the people. The yardstick to measure how good a government is will be to ask questions on the livelihood of the people. Are people today better-off than they were maybe eight years ago? The answer is NO. In our own time, we were receiving less than one third of what the present government is receiving but I can assure you that if you go out and ask an average Imo man whether he is better of now than then, you will get NO for an answer. - See more at: http://www.vanguardngr.com/2015/03/okorocha-is-deceiving-you-udenwa-tells-imo-people/#sthash.COhtlpX3.dpuf

Can you guys imagine this.
Is this guy called Rochas this much of a joker? Why would he be joking with lives?
And apc e-propagandists will be mentioning him amongst the most performing Governors in Nigeria?
When we talk of quality projects, come to Akwa Ibom, biko.

What a super-negative testimony for the loosing party!

Yes I heard he is owing so many contractors for projects like the entrance gate, schools, roads and hospitals all siting incomplete while Tinubu's tax collection agency is collecting money from hardworking business men, Roaches is squandering on projects for his girlfriends in Nollywood and his soon to be failed re-election bid.

When the contractors are not getting paid the increments they abandon the job they become hazards. He has perfected the technology of using Bamboo-sticks grade pillars for bridge construction. They will come here and tell you about roundabouts worth millions of dollars position in stupid places and call it progress, only him andwhatever he worship knows why he built that nonsense for millions of dollars.

Meanwhile these projects are really abandoned in Imo and the questions have to be raised why?
Answer for us smarty pants?
Hear the cry of the people

Governor, there is no road to the oldest Girls Secondary School, formerly Morning Star Girls Secondary Schol, Orlu. The job has been abandoned since last year, with trips of sand closing up any space; students now suffer, they go to school through the bush path. Residents suffer also. Pls help out. Let the road job be finished.

Jazzeman
I have always known this. I have always said it and people say am against APC. Rochas of Imo state is the worst governor in Nigeria with a 419 tendency. The last time I passed through Owerri, I wept. So many poorly executed projects, dividing of one lane into two with poor civil road work. uncompleted street gates, paying of school children 315naira every 3months. What kind of projects are these. Defecting to APC will never turn a bad egg into a good one.

EFCC is warming up....Contract Award is the ONLY means of defrauding the State,Get a Registered company and pose as a contractor,the government will give you the job if you are on the same page, and you disappear,they will fund your account for giving the contract....This is just the magic so Rochas knows them so well or even his Wife,daughter etc...........................What happened to Bureau of Public Enterprise to ascertain the good contracting firm,state has their measure to ascertain this............................U dont give contract from your fucking bed or kitchen,gosh.,...................Why has he decided to reaward the Concord hotel after the failed one deal,why didnt he revoke the contract and ask the same company to re work hence it wasnt okay,no more avenue to defraud so he decided to bogus it again.The more you look,the less u see..........Contracts..

Seun, Lalasticlala, Obinoscopy, please could one
of you guys ensure this op receives maximum
sentence for violating Rule 8?. The story is
probably false and picture attached to it was one from an incident that happened in Minneapolis, USA.

This is the kinda trash PDP is known for. Since
their master's bridge commissioned barely a
week ago is showing signs of falling apart, they
had to cOok up some story to rubbish the
opposition in a similar fashion as well.
