Apologies, but I don't understand how you quoted me. I'll try my best to answer though.
You said, "You are SUPPOSED to do it in Abuja", is there a reason for that?
In my earlier post, I recommended the Lagos office rather than the Abuja office, so I'm kinda confused with your question, Sir.
|Politics / Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Yampotatocarrot(m): 8:44pm On Dec 02|
My brother, I appreciate a point you've stated twice now. You asked what would be of some laudable construction projects of the previous administration.
I think the government really needs to look into that aspect. As much as we criticise Rochas for somethings, I believe he carried out some very laudable projects.
The eastern palm university, what becomes of it, will it be left to be over grown with weeds? What about the general hospitals? There is an extension of Imo poly just beside Ahiara Technical College, at Mbaise, it's currently being overgrown with weed (I was there).
I believe the government can leverage on all these and do something about it. That was what made Fashola the best governor consistently during his tenure as Lagos state governor.. continuity.
I hope Ihedioha listens
|Politics / Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Yampotatocarrot(m): 8:32pm On Dec 02|
This brought back memories. I remember I once tried getting into the waste recycling business during the time of Rochas. My area of concentration was the wastes being generated by FUTO, was gonna start there, then expand.
However, I was specifically told that WASTE RECYCLING WAS A BUSINESS MEANT FOR ONLY THE GOVERNMENT. Funny enough, till that government left, they didn't do anything serious about it.
I hope this new government will look into recycling of waste. Check out UBQ materials, they are an Israeli company into recycling of wastes to produce other materials.
I've had an email correspondence with them. Ihedioha can set up mini-recycling plants in several local governments, even if just 4 local governments outside Owerri. The company actually produces several types of "plastic" materials from these wastes.
These plants will be solely for that purpose and if possible, wastes could even be imported from other states for a fee. That way, Imo state gains on two fronts.
The only challenge I see will be provision of electricity for the plants to work, although I know there is a high voltage line with constant power supply from PHCN office (Industrial estates in Ogun state make use of that line), I don't know if such a line exists in Imo state though.
|Politics / Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Yampotatocarrot(m): 8:25pm On Dec 02|
Thanks for this. I believe Ihedioha really needs to look into this matter of lopsided development. Owerri isn't the only place in Imo state

You are welcome, Sir.
If I may add, I'll advise you use the Lagos office rather than the Abuja embassy, they require less documents and you'll get it same day (if you go early), or highest the next day (if it's a working day)... Only thing is you'll have to pay for each document in dollars, not naira
Just go to those aboki guys and change your naira into small denominations of the dollar. The embassy will issue you change if you have change to collect
This is unlike Abuja that requires more documents and will take about 4days before collection
|Travel / Re: Thread for South Korea prospective students by Yampotatocarrot(m): 11:41am On Nov 29|
Same as MOE and MOFA, the embassy will legalize only the photocopies that have been stamped by the ministries
But, just as the ministries will stamp the photocopies alongside the original, the embassy will REQUEST YOU TO SUBMIT THE STAMPED ORIGINALS.
The embassy won't legalize the originals,they just wanna see it before they legalize the already stamped photocopies
|Travel / Re: Thread for South Korea prospective students by Yampotatocarrot(m): 3:26am On Nov 29|
Lemme take it one by one.
There is no way you can send your originals to the school, what you'll send are the legalized photocopies of the original
But, MOE will NEVER legalize the photocopies without seeing the originals.
So, when you want to submit, you submit both the originals and the photocopies, they'll stamp ALL OF THEM, and return to you.
Same applies to the Ministry of Foreign affairs.
Please, check the page before this, I explained how it's to be done there.
The number of copies you want to send determines the number of photocopies you'll submit.
Meaning: Let us say you want to submit the document (WAEC result) to 3 schools, you'll have to submit the original WAEC result, with 4 photocopies. So, when you do the first clearance at MOE, you inform them how many you need, that'll determine the amount they'll ask you to go and pay at the bank
Same applies to the Ministry of Foreign affairs
I hope this helps, Sir
|Travel / Re: Thread for South Korea prospective students by Yampotatocarrot(m): 5:21pm On Nov 28|
U ain't sending d original cert to SK
Na d photocopy u go send.. but they'll have to stamp both the photocopy n original at the ministries..
They'll peel off a portion at the back, u don't need to worry about that

[quote author=Afam4eva post=84408688]I drove around Owerri town
I don't know why, but I find this really funny.
I pray Ihedioha takes us to that point where all Imo roads or even Owerri roads are like the ones you drove on
|Travel / Re: Bus Fare Within Nigeria by Yampotatocarrot(m): 8:29pm On Nov 26|
Check cross country, they have a package where they take corpers directly to their camps in various states.
Go to their office and confirm if the Owerri office has such package among other information

|Politics / Re: Imo, Zamfara, Oyo, Ekiti: Rate Your Governors Since Power Changed Hands by Yampotatocarrot(m): 6:34pm On Nov 26|
Yeah, I witnessed this, thats close to Owerri.
I hope they work on the portion of relief roundabout that has broken down
|Politics / Re: Imo, Zamfara, Oyo, Ekiti: Rate Your Governors Since Power Changed Hands by Yampotatocarrot(m): 6:33pm On Nov 26|
Yeah, I think I saw that also, although the Ozarra-egbelu axis is broken down. I hope they get to the really bad portion before people start coming home for Xmas.
As for when work started, a student of Nekede helped out with my project and the said student joined me on Thursday afternoon, from Nekede. That was how I got that information... I might be wrong with my counting, but the work started sometimes last week.
Anyway na way, we are happy work has started on it
|Politics / Re: Imo, Zamfara, Oyo, Ekiti: Rate Your Governors Since Power Changed Hands by Yampotatocarrot(m): 6:18pm On Nov 26|
I really hope he pulls through with the recruitment. It is a good development that he has started the process. I just concluded some survey projects in secondary schools in Ahiazu Mbaise local government of Imo state. I make boldly to say that ALL THE SECONDARY SCHOOLS lack teachers, as in you'll see a government secondary school with JUST 8 teachers.
Report however has it that the governor has been visiting some of the schools, atleast he was at Ahiara Technical College at Junction few weeks back. The school is really looking forward to the governor carrying out even if it's just half of the promises made.
Although he still has a long way to go, although he is really slow in his approach, as in really slow, I'll boldly say he seem to have started on a good note
|Politics / Re: Imo, Zamfara, Oyo, Ekiti: Rate Your Governors Since Power Changed Hands by Yampotatocarrot(m): 6:09pm On Nov 26|
Please and please, I dont really know areas, but if you mean Poly,as in Nekede, let's be frank they just started the road about 3/4 days ago.
I'm not too versatile with Imo state, but with the little time I spent there (I just returned on Saturday), I'll say the government really has to WAKE UP, because the roads are terribly bad.
On a side note, although it's a federal road, do you know the road from Owerri to Umuahia has totally collapsed in some portions?
|Politics / Re: Imo, Zamfara, Oyo, Ekiti: Rate Your Governors Since Power Changed Hands by Yampotatocarrot(m): 10:51am On Nov 26|
I think everyone that needs to know about Imo's current state should visit the thread on Imo state.
You'll see unbiased reports from the state, from people who want the best for their state.
|Politics / Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Yampotatocarrot(m): 3:41am On Nov 26|
Thanks for the advice, Sir
|Politics / Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Yampotatocarrot(m): 9:24pm On Nov 25|
Thanks Sir, I made mention of that also
|Politics / Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Yampotatocarrot(m): 9:35pm On Nov 24|
I know it's a long read, but I'm trying to be as honest as I can be. I know someone that matters will read this and relevant changes will be made.
Please, there are some buildings built in the same compound as Ahiara Technical College, the info I got was that they were built as extension of Imo poly by the Rochas administration, now that Rochas has left, the buildings have been left to be overtaken by weeds, please, it'll be okay if the buildings are furnished and handed over to the college, rather than spending money building a TVET whatever structure that the present government is currently building there.
I repeat, please and please, the governor needs to really talk to the administrators in secondary schools in Mbaise, ESPECIALLY THE SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL PRINCIPALS, and fire those that are evidently not capable or worthy of that position.
Roads: The expansion of the road from Fire service to MCC junction is a good idea, although I believe the contractors either don't know what they are doing or just stupidly trying to justify the millions they might have collected for it, because they are acting as amateurs.
The road from MCC road by Chris Onuoha junction (I'm sure my spelling z wrong) to Egbu road has collapsed, as in totally collapsed. You have to trek through bush paths cos the road kinda sunk, and is not like a pit, filled with dirty water. (That's the road in front of Clairfort or whatever hotel)
Good part is I never experienced policemen asking for bribes, but even if the Mbaise people are not voicing it out, probably because the governor is related to them, there is a hidden dissatisfaction among them about the current state of things generally in the state.
(This is a truthful analysis of the current state of roads in Imo state and secondary education in Mbaise, I just wonder how other areas will be).
I'm not an opposition member nor am I a government worker, I'm just a concerned indigene who had the opportunity to go back home for a project after about 4 years away
|Politics / Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Yampotatocarrot(m): 9:18pm On Nov 24|
Okay, I just returned from Imo state yesterday. Went there for an educational project in Ahiazu Mbaise local government area.
I'll like to be really honest with what I'll be saying here, and I'll only face two sectors -Road and Education
Please and please, if anyone can pass this message to Ihedioha, it'll be appreciated.
The roads in Imo are CURRENTLY BAD, as in VERY VERY BAD. At a point I was wondering if the governor even moves outside the government house, because if he does, he would definitely have come across these roads.
Road from Owerri to Mbaise was impassable as at three days ago, we had to return to Owerri and started the journey through Airport road, got to another bad spot, returned to Owerri and took another road again.
I later had to find my way to Abia, then head back to Imo, through Umuahia to get to Mbaise.
Considering that Mbaise is where the governor is from, I wonder what he is thinking to have made the roads degraded to that state.
Nekede students are complaining cos of the poor state of the roads there, as in really bad, although they just started palliative works on the roads in Nekede day before yesterday.
From Ozarra-egbelu to Emekuku, through to Egbu road, the road is very BAD. I'll advise those that'll be travelling back for Xmas with their cars to do better work on their cars before going to Imo state, else you'll regret travelling with it. I'm serious.
Education: I don't know how they survive but all the secondary schools lack teachers. You'll see a secondary school with less than 8 teachers on ground (please, this isn't hearsay, but what I witnessed). Most teachings are done by student teachers who don't even know what they are doing. In the words of one of the student teachers: "Ayin bata nime class, ayin e chinwe ife na board..." (Once we enter class, we start writing on the board, whether they/we know what we are doing or not)
Most schools complained of security because there are no fences around them, and their offices are being vandalized, students also laid the same complain to us, of people entering the schools to former trouble.
Chairs? That'll be a miracle, most classes I visited had students either standing or sitting on the open windows... Those that had chairs were those donated by kind individuals.
I'm sorry to add this, but most teachers and even administrators ain't doing their job, they just sit there and wait for pay at the end of the month. Found out that junior principals were even more serious about their duty than senior principals. The junior principals were the ones who were trying to bring sense of decency to the schools.
I will make special mention of Ahiazu Secondary School and Obodo Ahiara Secondary School, when you visit these two schools, you'll think you are in a private school, the coordination, the way the students are handled is just impressive.
In all, from complaint of insufficient subject teachers to insecurity in public schools to truancy among students to inadequate classrooms, I feel the educational sector in Imo state needs an intervention.
Government should immediately employ qualified teachers and monitor them, infact ensure if teachers in a school are found not to be punctual, the principal of the school should be fired.
Fences should be built around these schools and security men employed to man the gates. In the case of Ahiazu Secondary School, the information I got from an outsider from Ogbe community was that the reason why the school is organized is that aside the duty played by it's teachers and over 60 teaching practice students it has, the community around the school have made it a duty to punish flog any of the students of the school they see roaming the streets of the community during school hours. So, there should also be community initiation
There were also cases of management misusing funds meant for development of the schools in some areas.
Ahiara technical college is in urgent need of assistance. The school doesn't even have a gate, per say. Although great works are being done in the departments of Building and Construction (B.C) and Electrical department.
On a side note: Their display day would be coming up in December, and I'll advise anyone with financial wherewithal to visit and school on that day and support in whatever way possible. PLEASE, ANY SUPPORT SHOULD EITHER BE GIVEN TO THE STUDENTS DIRECTLY OR IN PHYSICAL DONATION TO THE SCHOOL, NOT GIVEN TO THE MANAGEMENT.

Those guys actually make a lotta money, especially during the 2nd term of school session, cos most schools visit there for excursion.
Some schools even spend more than one day there, cos the attractions are JUST TOO MUCH.
Downside: The very bad road leading to Badagry, I hope the governments do something about it... And most importantly, for a city close to the sea, the fishes and coconut are not cheap (I think this is the most annoying part)
