Imo Assembly Approves Renaming Okorocha’s Eastern Palm Uni After Mbadiwe by Doraty1(f): 5:03pm On Feb 17
The Imo State House of Assembly has given a nod to the conversion of Eastern Palm University (EPU) allegedly owned by the former Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha into the K. O Mbadiwe University.

The approval followed an executive bill presented by the Deputy Majority Leader of the House and members representing Ehime-Mbano state constituency, Emeka Nduka during plenary on Wednesday.

The bill tagged, “a bill for a law to repeal the establishment of Eastern Palm University (EPU) law 2019 to enable the House to re-enact law for the establishment of K. O. Mbadiwe University in Imo State and other related matters,” was given an accelerated hearing and passed into law.

Some members of the Assembly who reacted to the bill apportioned blame on the 8th House of Assembly which earlier passed the EPU bill into law.

DAILY POST learned that the former governor who claimed ownership of the University, entered into a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) with the Imo State government using Rochas foundation to sign the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

It would be recalled that the Senator representing Orlu zone at the National Assembly had faced a series of attacks by Imo people on his claims to have owned the university.

The former Governor had severally been quoted as claiming that 90% of the university belonged to him while 10% was for Imo government.

Further reports had it that a judicial panel set up by the immediate past Governor of the state, Emeka Ihedioha, a couple of days back, finalized its inquiry and investigation to find out that the said institution was built with Imo State money.

Meanwhile, some lawmakers from Okigwe zone including the member representing Obowo state constituency, Kennedy Ibeh have appealed to the state Governor, Hope Uzodinma to consider the zone for the location of its satellite campus.

The Eastern Palm University is currently located at Ogboko in Ideato South Local Government Area of the state, the country home of the former Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha..

Good to remember Dr. Kingsley Ozumba Mbadiwe. A top-drawer orator and a flamboyant politician. God bless his soul.

Something is fundamentally wrong about Rochas.

Ihedioha came and accused him of converting Imo properties to his, APC government under Hope is accusing him of the same allegations.

I may be wrong, but Rochas hands are not clean.

ROCHAS OKOROCHA the maverick politician from Imo state never ceases to amaze me.

His greed for MORE AND MORE is pushing him to a territory of NO RETURN.

Quite sadly the same ROCHAS with BASKETFUL OF BAD NAMES still want to run for PRESIDENT OF NIGERIA.

What a maverick drunker and day dreamer !

On the naming of the university, I was having the thought that the university could be named after the Late Sam Mbakwe, former governor of Old Imo state.
