Somto Hospital Currently Being Destroyed In Douglas Owerri Imo State

Does the name Somto ring a bell in your ear or have you heard the name from somewhere else before, yes the truth is that somto was a young child who lost his life during the regime of former governor of imo state Mr Rochas Anayo Okoroacha who at that time ordered the demolition of the popular Eke ukwu known as douglas market. Somto lost his life when a stray bullet from the trigger happy men of the Nigeria armed forces who decided to go on a shooting spree to despatch off the traders who where adamant to vacate the popular douglas main market....

Somto lost his life at a young age and his dreams where also cut short. Imo state governor Anayo Okoroacha decided to build a hospital on his name to honor him but 2 years after the hospital has been built, the new governor has decided to bring it down.

Now my question to imolite is this, is the main market the main need of imo citizens. They should have transformed it if the feel that the hospital is not needed.

Hope Uzodimma DEMOLISHES HOSPITAL BUILT BY OKOROCHA FOR IMO PEOPLE

ONWUASOANYA FCC JONES

A state-of-the-art hospital built by the immediate past governor of Imo State, His Excellency Owelle Rochas Okorocha is at the moment being demolished by the current governor of the State, Chief hope uzodimma, in what many commentators have described as a badly thought-out act of political vendetta.

The hospital built with Imo funds had been fully completed, structurally, while, the necessary hospital equipment are the only things awaited for the hospital to kick into full operations.

The hospital named Somtochukwu Hospital is one of the over 30 hospitals initiated or completed by the Okorocha administration in eight years of holding sway, and is also a major legacy of the Okorocha administration, as it situated at a site of a major market relocated by that administration, in keeping to the advice of respected development experts and safety professionalism, since the said location of the said markets had posed some security and and health challenges, as disrupting the modernization and urbanization ambitions of the State Government.

Okorocha had built new markets in Egbeada, Ubomiri, Naze, Akwakuma, Amakohia and Ohi; all suburbs of the capital city, before relocating the old Ekeonunwa market. More than 10,000 shops were built at these new locations to meet the surging demand by traders. However, the uzodimma administration, in what some people believe is a misdirected political vendetta, ensured that some of the new markets are not occupied as he encouraged traders to return to the old market located in the heart of Owerri city.

According to Chief Joseph Nze, a community leader in Owerri; the idea of demolishing the new hospital is an affront on the people of the State.

"This hospital and many other such structures built by the Okorocha administration were not built with the former governor's personal funds, he built them with Imo State funds, public funds. So, when you go on a demolition spree of projects initiated by your predecessor, when you haven't built any at all, you should know that you are not fighting Okorocha, but fighting Imo people."

I'm against the destruction of properties in any disguise.

The building should be converted to another use instead of pulling it down.

Will you keep quiet Mr man..The tunnel that he called substandard is taking him 8months to demolish..Even the contractor doing the demolition has left the site, demanding more money because of the solid state of the tunnel, what he thought would take him like three days has exceeded to 8months, yet you all called it Substandard..Ndi Ara..what a waste of IMO resources..

I don’t think the hospital ever functioned for a day..... and the structure didn’t really look solid to me.... Same with the flyovers Rochas built too.....

I feel they could’ve reinforced the building(ie only if it’s okay to do so)...... my opinion though
