EMEABIAM: The forgotten community in Owerri West, L.G.A – Mrs.Betty Anywanwu Akeredolu

Mrs. Betty Anywanwu- Akeredolu is the wife of ACN Gubernatorial candidate Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, SAN who lost to Gov.Mimiko at the just concluded elections in Ondo State.  An ardent follower of the IMO STATE BLOG, she reached out to express her dismay over the state government’s neglect of the Emeabiam community.


Am proud to be associated with this blog simply because am proud of my roots. I come from Emeabiam an obscure and forgotten community in Owerri West lga, believe it or not the home of thousands of hectares rubber estate lying waste due to successive Imo State govt neglect. An estate if Imo State is serious about tackling youth unemployment will engage teaming Imo youth roaming the streets without future.

But today my Emeabiam with its luxuriant green vegetation and potentials for eco-tourism is making history today. V-One, a community development initiative that will bring about change in the socio-economic status of its people is being launched today.

The sons and daughters of Emeabiam are saying “Enough is Enough” of governmentt neglect of the community. With one voice, we are saying that “Time is now to take our destiny in our hands” and transform Emeabiam from an impoverished community to a land of opportunity. Yes we can! Yes we should!! Yes we will!!!


Proudly Emeabiam. Say it Loud!
