Imo state government has disclosed that 25 Billion Naira would be
spent in the on-going transformation of Orlu into a model city.

The state governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha stated this while
inspecting Umuna erosion site and other projects in the area.

Governor Okorocha said that a whopping sum of 5 Billion Naira has already been spent on the projects, pointing out that the site was
abandoned over years even upon several efforts to attract federal
government attention to the erosion menace.



He expressed satisfaction with the quality of job and the level of
speed at which the construction is done especially, the drainage and
dualization of the road that links Orlu city to the international
market in the area.

He reassured that his administration would continue to focus more on
capital projects than re-current as well as shining wastages and
unprofitable spending, pointing out that the job is single-handedly
funded by state government.

The managing Director J.P. Contracting, Mr. Garry Pisius said his
company is on their toes to ensure the completion of the project
before next rainy season.

In a similar development at Imo State University Teaching Hospital
(IMSUTH) Orlu, Governor Okorocha expressed dissatisfaction that
despite the huge amount the state has spent on the second phase of the
project it is yet to be completed.

He asserted that the Rescue Mission administration is interested in
the continuity of every good and well-thought-out project that would
boost the economy of the state, such as Orlu Teaching Hospital which
he noted was started by former state Governor Chief Achike Udenwa and
later abandoned by Ohakim-led administration.

He therefore called on the contractors to expedite action to ensure
completion of the 2nd phase of the hospital projects on or before
February 2013 as he reassured that the state government will continue
to play its part to actualize the projects which he described as one
capable of turning lives around in the area.

In his response, the acting Chief Medical Director (CMD) of IMSUTH,
Dr. Nzewuibe Chijioke who explained that the MRI machines and other
specialist clinic scan equipment have been installed and thanked the
governor for his commitment to make the hospital one of the best in
the country.

  1. The way OKOROCHA is cutting short the career growth paths of professionals and civil servants in Imo State must not go unpunished. Imagine an Ag CMD for IMSUTH. What happened to the young energetic CMD? 10,000 youth sacked. 27 LGA workers on forced leave. LGA funds develop wings. substandard road works and abandoned projects litter the landscape. GOD forbid this wuruwuru I too know (ITK) Rochas. Greed disguised as rescue mission. You have abandoned the rescue for the real mission- steal Imo State blind with advanced fraud format aka resue agenda!

    • It is obvious: whoever had been the CMD of IMSUTH till the appointment of the ACMD had been ineffective. Not much good developments have been observed in IMSUTH since Ohakim left, despite the financial commitment of Okorocha-led government to make the hospital grow. The hospital’s web site is never administered. Patient is spelled Partient in two places on the website for close to one year now without correction. That’s a pointer to the fact that whoever was the CMD never cared about the hospital’s well being.

      And Dr. Goodman, you make a mess of yourself by attaching Dr. to your appellation with the frivolous accusations you make against Gov. Okorocha. No governor in Imo state has in such a short time impacted positively on the whole of Imo state than Okorocha. Or do you prefer the old where Ohakim buried his head for four years in Owerri doing clean and green, erecting huge road signs and flyovers on some narrow roads of the state capital?

  2. Work on that Umuna erosion site in Orlu was started by Gov. Amadi Ikwecheghi through an Israeli company. But was abandoned as soon as Ikwecheghi left office. Since then, buildings have been swallowed by erosion there. A baby was reportedly swallowed also by erosion on that site. Udenwa came, led for eight years and never did the erosion control. Thanks to brilliant Gov.Okorocha for remembering to restart the erosion control project. That’s the action governor in Imo state.

  3. Insulting people will not help us here. Only truth will. This truth is that this rescue mission is suspect. Who is the rescuer and who is being rescued? Even the staunchest supporters of the governor are not spared the raw irresponsibility, cluelessness and sheer insensitivity of their boss.
    ABEG, WHO WILL RESCUE IMO FROM THE RESCUE MISSION?

  4. Nkechi the strip dancer at LAMONDE HOTEL Owerri annex behind Government House Owerri at it again. Please tell your strip club grand patron and OWNER of LAMONDE HOTEL ROCHAS OKOROCHA to get a life and leave highly qualified professionals alone. We were talking of CMD IMSUTH now the VC of IMSU Prof BEB Nwoke has been ingloriously sacked via IBC Radio and TV announcement ordering him to hand over “with immediate effect”. “Nkechi” what do you say to that you brainless goat who does not know what goes into the making of a professional with your illiterate “I too know” (ITK) intellectually disabled Governor ROCHAS deputised by a tailor JUDE AGBASO?

  5. Nkechi the strip dancer at LAMONDE HOTEL owerri behind Government House Owerr, lest I forget, DR Goodman, my humble self is an expert in constructive criticism and not in blind tofoolery like you and the dimnishing club of blind ROCHAS otinkpu. I have passed through an institution of higher learning with classmates and honestly earned my chain of degrees unlike ROCHAS whop claims to have MASTERS DEGREE in LAW without having an alumni or a classmate- haba. Tell me what is not wrong with Nze Ogueri Enwere that was sacked as Commissioner in Imo State and still allowed to reside in Commissioner’s quarters in Owerri for months on end now? Has it got anything to do with “man to man” or gay relationship with the “bigman” gone sour and why is Dr Obi Njoku still keeping his portfolio as “Horrible Commissioner” despite being a complete fraud and flop (F&F)? Tell the world as you can only convince yourself. Ohakim is a page in history while ROCHAS will be a dot the way he is greedily unfurling his thieving agenda in Imo State.

  6. NKECHI ,
    YOU ARE A FOOL TO INSULT PEOPLE
    IN SOCIAL MEDIA.
    SO OKOROCHA IS GOD SENT?
    TIME WILL TELL.
    THE S IS IN PAINS UNDER ROCHAS WHO HAS BLED IT DRYTATE

  7. OUT OF THE N25 BILLION HE IS EARMARKING,
    N24 BILLION IS SURE GOING TO HIM AND HIS COMPANY.
    A MAN WHO GOT INTO GOVERNANCE WITH SO MUCH GOODWILL NOW HAS SO MUCH IMAGE PROBLEM MAKES ME TO WONDER.
    IF ROCHAS IS COURAGEOUS LET HIM DROP ON WETHRAL AND STAND FOR 5 MINUTES IF HE WOULD NOT BE STONED TO DEATH BY IMO PEOPLE.
    IMO PEOPLE NOW KNOW BETTER.
    PACK AND GO YOU THIEF
