You must not measure dicks!!!

Simply brag about yours without denigrating others. Is that an impossible thing to do? You must not put others down to feel good about your own stuff. When you're big, everyone knows you are even if you don't try to make others look small.

Na wa o. Some of una get serious inferiority complex issues.

We seriously need a regional system of Government where each region manage their resources. Imagine a functional international airport in this region with resource control(favourable economic policies).

Now we know politicians are the same in every region. But don't you think each region can be more United on their own to protest a bad leadership of their own, rather than the leadership at the center?. Yes we can't rule out corruption which is not just a Nigerian thing but to an extent, favourable economic policies can go a long way.

Owerri and Imo states are growing in leaps and bounds.

The city in eastern heart land is arguably underrated.

Take a look.

(Pic courtesy of Nairalanders)



Not 1/4 of Imo population celebrate this Owerri thing.

Owerri consumed the money that should have gone to build three cities in Imo state.


Because three governors in a row since 2007 believe that they are enemy to former governor of Imo state from 1999 whose hometown is Orlu urban Local government area..


These govs refuse to do any development in Orlu.

Okigwe became a collateral victim.

The governors driven by broken heart waste all the devt funds of Imo state on Owerri.

The last thing Owerri people will agree to is return to regional government system with headquarters at Enugu.


Owerri people enjoy Imo state reduced by confidence men governors to become only Owerri capital territory.
Below is the most principal urban road in Orlu abandoned by successive governors of Imo from 2007 till today.

The governors foolishly think that they are punishing one man in Orlu.

Why won’t Owerri believe in Nigeria? Any town which consumed the development funds meant for development of 3 to 4 urban centers of the state must believe in one Nigeria.


Nigeria buttered the bread of Owerri and Owerri people.


In 1976 when Imo state was created, there were little differences in the levels of urban development between Owerri, Orlu and Okigwe.

Owerri lobbied or watched all 6 government universities and polytechnics in Imo state located in Owerri - no consideration for Orlu and Okigwe.

Define wickedness.

You are not totally right.
State Government will not do all the development for you considering the realities on ground. But what we are saying is this; that they should create opportunities for development to thrive. Such opportunities include..
- Relocating some state institutions to those regions
- there is also nothing wrong if he sets up a governors office (anex) in okigwe. It is doable. Infact the state legislators can resolve that ceremonial duties be done in okigwe then office duties in owerri or vice versa. There is no how it won't develop

That's same reason I advocate for more federal presence in this part of the country, because we have the human resources to develop anywhere without the government. What we need is just opportunities

Don't generalize by saying the last thing owerri people will want is a regional at enugu.

It may interest you to know that an average imo man would love to have the type of governors enugu produce than theirs. (From 1999 till date)

Any day any Imo state governor talks about removing one or two tertiary education institutions from Owerri to Orlu as you suggested, the people of Owerri senatorial district may prepare to set Imo state ablaze that day.


There are rotting university facilities in Orlu, but a School for the Mentally and Physically handicapped is all that’s allowed in Orlu since Adam.

Even the teaching hospital in Orlu has been sabotaged to death bed by people who believe that all govt development institutions must be in Owerri state capital.

But Owerri people have been enjoying the fun with governors like Ohakim, Okorocha and Uzodinma who think that urban development in Imo state is all about state capital.


Imo may never get governors like Enugu because the foundation for the type of governance in Imo state has been deeply established - governance of state capital; Owerri people celebrate, sell a plot of land for millions of Naira, train as many kids as possible in the many universities and polytechnics scattered every corner of Owerri zone. So how can Owerri man agree to return to Enugu as regional headquarters?

You don't know the power a governor in Nigeria wields.
They are not just serious about it. The people won't do 'jack'. After all there are so many unimaginable things that have been done to the citizens and it all ended in beer palours

But in this situation where Imo has been having governors since 2007 till today who see one enemy in Orlu, thus because of one enemy, they deny hundreds of thousands of residents in Orlu what the town deserves from government; and Owerri celebrating the situation - it’s hard to see any redistribution of institutions and amenities concentrated in Owerri to other towns in Imo state. These governors can’t even initiate new institutions and amenities outside Owerri area.

You are getting it all mixed up. It is not about the people of owerri agreeing. It is about the type of governors imo state have been producing. Once a governor sets out his mind to do something, he will. They stopped okada at post udewenwa- pre ohakim era, and people threatened fire and brim stone. But they achieved it. Ohakim stopped street trading. Rochas stopped Keke(which looked impossible) and introduced bus Imo.
So it's not about owerri people to agree to a regional system. Owerri is just one out of many LGA's in imo state
