Sir,

We would want to use this medium to thank you “The amiable Governor of Imo State and Commander of free education, Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha (OON)” for your great desire to transform and develop Imo State. We appreciate the enormous investment the state has made in education, road construction, hospitals and in agriculture under your careful and articulated leadership. We also realize your sincere and good intention in the plan to construct and relocate the Eke-Ukwu Owerri Market to Ohii, Owerri West L.G.A, noting that the idea is to decongest Douglas Road, School Road and Ekeonunwa Street.

I would usually dress in a fading blue jeans and a shirt that seemed to be oversize but was actually my size. This was just unlike the fitted stuffs that now adorn my taste. I learnt every shortcut in Owerri especially those that connected my favourite spots. Recording studios.

The Presidential speeches of His Excellency the President and Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Gen. (Rtd) Mohammadu Buhari (AKA Baba Go-Slow) refers. It was a terse national broadcast to touch on only the key issues of great national relevance that are actually perturbing the change-bearing administration of the President Muhammadu Buhari (PMB). But the interesting aspect of that speech marking the celebration of May Day on May 2016 was the deliberate down-play or omission of the worrisome Fulani Herdsmen terrorism raging across the country.


The political situation and arithmetic in The People Democratic Party, PDP has reached a confluence of progressive prerogative, a state of germinating negativity, settling into a state of “Amakeme”. Today, the bane of the party is untruthfulness and deceit. How did the party get here?

Those who posit that the yet to be concluded congress is the main cause of the PDP quagmire are either deceiving themselves or have refused to be truthful to themselves. The congress is merely an event that opened up a can of worms in the party, a can that would have invariably burst open by itself. But better now that the party still has time to mend things and sooth agitating nerves.

It is important to put certain issues in proper perspectives before speculations tear them in shreds, making it difficult to assemble the issues for comprehensive understanding. I am not from Okigwe zone, but I am an Imo indigene who is interested in one thing, development of Okigwe zone which to me will translate to the development of the larger Imo where I belong. So I will become a beneficiary of development in every part of Imo.
