I just returned from Imo on a 5 day visit to my village. I commend the state govt for bringing the security problems in the state under relative control.
However, the bad spot on the entrance road into Owerri from Añara around Akabo area is a death trap and I dont think the state govt shld either wait for fed govt or the rain before urgent rehab is done to that road.
I also wish to point out that though Rochas’s tenure is quite young, I expected to have seen new roads…but I am willing to concede that this will happen after the raining season.
May I also advise the govt to consider building industries as to empower the teaming unemployed youths in the state. I saw so much poorvaty and unemployment. I also heard pple saying that they have to be alive to benefit from Rochas’ health care and free education programes. Rochas can come to Enugu and tap from industries like INNOSON PLASTICS and EMENITE. Instead of building hotels, he can build plastic and roof tiles indusries laiasing with Chinese expatriates and modelled after INNOSON and EMENITE after which they cld be privatised. These industries are capable of employing thousands of youths from Imo state.
I hope somebody here who is close to the govt will find a way of leaking this piece to the relevant authorities in Imo.
This is an honest evaluation and critic from nwafor Imo who canvassed for and supported the election of Rochas therefore this shld be taken seriously!
IMO MUST BE BETTER!!!
