Eastern cities mostly have exotic look unlike what obtains in some parts of Nigeria where you see lots of disgusting slum settlements that pass of as towns or even state capitals. I'm in Owerri now and I must say that the city is breathtaking by Nigerian standards.

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.

Omenka, don't mind the pure reeetard!

That's not true.
The entire New Owerri is awesome. Bank road, Okigwe road, Orlu road, Ikenegbu layout, Amakohia, World bank etc. are all beautiful. In fact, I don't think there is any area in Owerri that can actually be called a shit hole by Nigerian standard except some roads that are bad.

You mean this is heaven in Owerri?

Ol man/woman, who are you fooling by comparing Orlu with Ogbaku, Ikeduru etc?

Orlu, your Owerri and Okigwe are the 3 urban centers in Imo state - official, beginning from the day present Imo state started. Any modern development in Owerri is supposed to have been in Orlu if we have had good administrators in Imo state.


Colonial masters started urban development in Owerri, Orlu and Okigwe the same time when the Ogbakus and Ikedurus were mere villages.

pls dont misquote me i am not comparing anywhere with anywhere my opinion is there are beautiful places everywhere in my State so there are some bad places too
there are nice places in Orogwe
Ogbuta
Ejemekuru

That's it.
It may interest you to know that the reason most people speak ill of the city is just because of differing political views. And forgetting that this governors irrespective of party lines are the same. Some appear like angels initially and turn into something else later. And that's part of the reasons the black people are poor(not necessarily lack of cash). They don't encourage ingenuity. They(Nigerians especially) do not see another path to collective prosperity asides oil money and federal allocation.

The greedy nature of Owerri people regarding the commonwealth of Imo state is reason why people speak ill of Owerri.
How can Owerri people account for their coveting every development institution of government in Imo state only for themselves in Owerri?
Once villages in Owerri area are becoming urban areas while urban areas that started Imo state with Owerri deteriorate. Owerri people are happy over that.

What greediness are you even talking about?
It's not that imo state have been producing governors from owerri zone in the last decade.
All are from orlu and okigwe (ohakim). Correct me if I'm wrong. So the people have nothing to do with it. Like I said earlier, once a governor in Nigeria sets out his mind to do something, he will achieve it(especially if it has to do with development).
Therefore, I make strong my case that most people speak ill because of political differences. Previous comments on nairaland have pointed to that .


Guide: how you will know that it is political is this; they will tell you a road is bad. But they won't tell you that construction is ongoing on those roads.
Re: Owerri. The Magnificence Of A City In the East. by Jman24(m): 11:20am On Dec 05, 2020
Even people praising ohakim now for his clean and green initiative have now suddenly forgotten how he was heavily criticized. How the only thing he could achieve was planting flowers. Like I said before. Beauty of a state is not one sided. There are aggregated factors that contribute to total beauty of a state not just good roads.

First criteria is an organized/grid system that gives you a platform to
a) tar mapped out roads as much as possible. with sidewalks and closed drainages
b) Land scaping

Second is quality of structures (both residential and commercial)

The south east cities are generally beautiful and organized. That some sub components of the first criteria is ongoing, doesn't take away the beauty.
