READERS MAIL: The proposed relocation of Imo State University to Ogboko.


 To whom it may concern,

I read about Owelle and his arrangement to move IMSU to his village hometown.  Since 2005, Owelle Rochas has been wanting to own a university but he could not get a licence.  in Ogboko he built a complete structure  but it is without a licence.

It has not been easy for him to get the licence we are talking about. In 2009, he went to the NUC to ask why they refused to grant him licence to operate a university. Same thing that happened to Orji Uzor Kalu.  So, what Okorocha may be trying to do is to move the existing structure to his hometown and come up with an excuse to sell the university to himself on the premise that the state does not have the funds to run it.

Bear in mind that if IMSU leaves Owerri, not less than 40,000 people will be shifted out of the economy of Owerri. Therefore, the economy that comes into the Owerri Zone will be deflated.  There is no job . What of the  provision sellers around the university?  Who will purchase their goods or will they move with the University to Ogboko?  Owelle should  consider this.
