|Okorocha Set To Trade Imsuth Orlu To Owerri For His Private University? by kikake: 4:45pm On Oct 02, 2016|
To reconsider the location of Imo state University Teaching Hospital (IMSUTH) Orlu and its viability in the town, and relocate IMSUTH to Owerri, Gov. Rochas Okorocha has set up a committee headed by Speaker Imo House of Assembly, Hon. Acho Ihim.
But looking deeper, Rochas Okorocha is merely about to trade Imo state University Teaching Hospital Orlu to Owerri. The trading is for a least opposition to Okorocha from Owerri when very soon, whatever shares which the Imo state government has in Eastern Palm University is to be said to have been sold to a private concern; a private concern which of course, shall be Okorocha's business empire - Rochas Foundation.
While in office as governor, Okorocha built Eastern Palm University in his home town, Ogboko in Ideato south Local Government area of Imo state.
Eastern Palm University is now described by Imo state government as a Private-Public Partnership enterprise; but it is only a question of time before someone tells the public that the public share in Eastern Palm University has been sold to a Private entity.
According to a Recent Press Release by Sam Onwuemeodo, the mouthpiece of Imo state Governor, Rochas Okorocha, and published in many online news outlets, including the vanguard; the Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Acho Ihim is the chairman of the committee on the Review of the Activities and Infrastructural Development on state owned Higher Institutions, with fifteen other members.
The committee was also charged to reconsider the location of the Imo State University Teaching Hospital (IMSUTH) and its viability in Orlu and the location of the main campus of the University in the State Capital, with the committee expected to find out whether IMSUTH won’t be more useful to our people if located in Owerri.

Is Rochas Okorocha not going nuclear in his use of Imo state government and its apparatuses to enlarge his private Rochas Foundation businesses?
IMSUTH is established in Orlu by law of Imo State Government.
IMSUTH Orlu has no business with the politics of Okorocha's Eastern Palm University in his hometown in Ideato South Lga.
IMSUTH has been too deeply developed in Orlu such that only a most awkward person would contemplate this committee, talk less relocation, because Okorocha doing that now is most likely to amount to Imo state losing IMSUTH.
IMSUTH is in Orlu because of a law establishing Imo state University as a Multi-campus university meant for the three senatorial zones of the state.
IMSUTH is only state or federal education institution in Orlu.
Will Okorocha throw Imo state in chaos before he finally goes, on or before 2019?

Be rest assured that Okorocha can only play with the Idea but can NEVER implement it. Umu Orlu is unanimous in this and Okorocha will become a leprous Governor if he plays with this insane and beserk idear for long let alone attempting to implement it. Udo diri unu

Presently, the location of the teaching hospital is not helping anyone at all! Orlu is too underdeveloped. Imsuth and imsu should swap locations.

CharleyCharley:Orlu isn't that undeveloped. Rather the Idiot of a Governor have refused to upgrade infrastructure at IMSUTH for what ever reason
|Re: Okorocha Set To Trade Imsuth Orlu To Owerri For His Private University? by amakenny: 8:46pm On Oct 02, 2016|
Lol. He who the gods want to kill, they first make him mad.
IMSUTH was most viable, its more than 200 bed wards fully occupied, was taking refered cases from FMC, and other hospitals.
Only a lazy drone can frown about the 25 minutes drive from any part of Imo state to IMSUTH Orlu.
Delta state University Teaching Hospital is not in the state capital, it is at Oghara.
Anambra state University Teaching Hospital is not in the state capital, it is at Nnewi.
But Okorocha roughened and abandoned the road leading to IMSUTH since 2012, frustrate the doctors and nurses, stopped accreditation, stopped admission of fresh medical students, all in reparation for relocating IMSUTH so as to have a soft landing for his crooked manner in establishing his private university in his village while in office as governor. .

Is Owerri developed? Sure you have not seen a developed town before. Owerri has gulped nearly every development monies that come to Imo state government since 1976, yet Orlu and Okigwe denied every thing from government still chase Owerri in development.

Why site a teaching hospital in the first place in a village or town?Its wrong.It was done probably for political patronage at d time.
U can site a main campus or branch campus of a university in Orlu or any village.Even the preclinical med school can be so sited,but it makes no sense for a teaching hospital.
Teaching hospitals are best sited in capitals or well developed transit towns because of accessibility,and the greater spread and number of patients that will patronize it.Doctors and specualists are also less inclined to be punctual,or take calls in places like Orlu,putting lives of patients at risk.
Places like Orlu can at best have a well equipped general hospital ,not a teaching hospital.
On this I support Okorocha

Ignorance + Excessive Greed.
University Teaching Hospital is a research institution, not a general hospital, therefore, teaching hospitals don't require to be located in overcrowded places, like General hospital (FMC in Owerri).
University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital was in Enugu but had to be relocated to a rural town.
Oxford University (John Radcliffe) Hospital is not at the centre of Oxford City.
Anambra, Abia, Delta, and many other states University Teaching Hospitals are conveniently located outside the state capital.
Okorocha wants to end the existence of IMSUTH merely because of excessive greed for his private businesses, because no other Imo state government can develop IMSUTH elsewhere.
In Okorocha 's sense, if he tells Owerri people that IMSUTH shall be relocated to Owerri, therefore Owerri people will not question much when he tells Imo state that the state government's shares in Eastern Palm University in his village has been sold to Rochas Foundation.
On the day Okorocha was receiving licence for Eastern Palm University, he told National University Commission that it has been 12 years he had been nursing the idea of that university.
@doctokwus, you had better worry about your Ekeukwu Owerri. It may no longer exist once uprooted; like many other infrastructures in Imo state so far destroyed by this government.
|Re: Okorocha Set To Trade Imsuth Orlu To Owerri For His Private University? by doctokwus: 10:54pm On Oct 02, 2016|
amakenny:This just confirmed your ignorance.
Unth new site is at the outskirts of Enugu,along Enugu Okigwe expressway.
Ubth,oauth,umth,abuth etc are in state capitals.
Abia teaching hospital is in Aba,a major commercial capital.
It's only people who play childish politics that wud locate a teaching hospital in a village in Nigeria.
In developed Climes it's understandable but in a place like Nigeria and Orlu? How many people patronize IMSUTH compared to Fmc owerri,even when IMSUTH theoretically is supposed to have a higher status.
Mr man,the best thing that can happen to IMSUTH is taking it to Owerri or the immediate outskirts of it,not in an isolated village.U probably haven't been to Orlu before that's y u type out of ignorance and hate for Okorocha.

Population of Owerri is about 650,000; by 2006 census, Owerri had 401,873 inhabitants.
Population of Orlu is 420,000.
Population of Owerri goes drastically down each time the about 200,000 students and staff of the five tertiary education institutions in Imo state unfortunately located only in Owerri go on vacation.
Celebration weeks, Owerri is usually empty when the civil servants and students troop out of Owerri.
What do you think Owerri is, not withstanding that it has had more than 90% of development infrastructures by Federal and state governments to Imo state?
These outgoing population from Owerri go to swell the populations of Orlu areas known as the most densely populatated in West Africa outside the big cities.
IMSUTH's more than 200 beds were 24/7 fully occupied, and the institution working optimally, until Rochas Okorocha started programming to give IMSUTH away in lieu of his private university in his village.
For your information, IMSUTH was once classified among the first ten best teaching hospitals in Nigeria when I worked there.
So go with your excessive greed fueled by lousiness which makes your lot have the warped intelligence that every major establishment in a state must be in the state capital.
You lot have sold shame in the market in Imo state, with your lousy belief that no other parts of Imo state deserve anything good from the state government, except your Owerri.

That's not the point I'm trying to make. Imsuth is located in the middle of nowhere without accessible roads.
|Re: Okorocha Set To Trade Imsuth Orlu To Owerri For His Private University? by TheArchangel(f): 12:20pm On Oct 03, 2016|
CharleyCharley:Then build an accessible road. What an excuse
|Re: Okorocha Set To Trade Imsuth Orlu To Owerri For His Private University? by kikake: 10:55pm On Oct 03, 2016|
IMSUTH Orlu is situated about one-and-half kilometres from Orlu city centre.
IMSUTH is strategically located 500 meters between two federal roads: federal road from Anambra state through Orlu to Anara/Amaraku -Umuahia;
and another federal road from Anambra state through Orlu to Owerri.
This one kilometre road which joins IMSUTH from the two federal roads is what Gov Okorocha bluntly refused to repair for over four years the road was badly washed out. Students protested even to Owerri before Okorocha to repair this one kilometre road,
Why? Because he had for many years planned to do what he has now set up Acho Ihim Committee to recommend for him.
People can be so miserable in mind set.

If Gov. Okorocha relocates IMSUTH from Orlu to Owerri, heavens shall fall on the ground between Orlu and Ideato, Ogboko to be precise.
It's like Okorocha wants to slap the face of every person in Orlu.
The five state and federal tertiary education institutions in Imo state are in Owerri.
Before Okorocha government, IMSUTH was fully patronized, beds fully occupied.
|Re: Okorocha Set To Trade Imsuth Orlu To Owerri For His Private University? by Abagworo(m): 7:51pm On Feb 10, 2017|
This news is old and stale but Okorocha has invested a lot of money in upgrade of Imsuth which looked more or less like a poultry farm before his emergence as Governor in 2011. I therefore doubt the move will be made without a positive mindset.
On a side note Eastern Palms University is already finer and better planned than IMSU and might beat ABSU as the finest University in the Southeast when completed. Ownership doesn't matter because even if Okorocha owns it then better as it will be a free University of high quality like Rochas foundation Colleges. Kudos to Okorocha for being the best Governor in history of Igboland.
|Re: Okorocha Set To Trade Imsuth Orlu To Owerri For His Private University? by Call07034780891: 7:59pm On Feb 10, 2017|
You are right. The truth is bitter. Today IMSUTH is nothing more than a pig farm while IMSU in Owerri now like where goats are kept. It is a shame that it is only Imo state in the SE that does not have a state university and teaching hospital in the SE. All thanks to Okorocha that has sent Imo state backwards by 30yrs. Hehehe..
|Re: Okorocha Set To Trade Imsuth Orlu To Owerri For His Private University? by mandax: 8:14pm On Feb 10, 2017|
Abagworo you don't seem to follow events in Rochas government house.
Rochas is putting his fingers into the mouths of tigers in Orlu through his romance with relocating IMSUTH Orlu to Owerri.
If he goes ahead with the romance, that university in Ogboko shall be wrecked; this is like a secret getting leaked here.
Rochas has challenged those sleeping tigers a lot.

Use your skull, Institutions bring development to cities and town not the other way round.

Wow, Imo state capital craves only on govt institutions, no industries, to bring population to the state capital for urbanisation.

This is a criminal offence oh

Loool, the gov does not know what shall be if he does not drop the crazy idea of relocating IMSUTH from Orlu
