“We are fed up with this “government of tyranny” in Imo state – Ideato Youth group.

fed upYouths under the aegis of Federation of Ideato Youths Association (FIYA),comprising of Ideato north and south have described the administration of Owelle Rochas Okorocha as ”TYRANICAL”.

These youths pointed out that they will not be party to supporting a failed governor simply because he is from Ideato. According to them, they could not imagine why a governor who is supposed to be the peoples servant will now choose to see himself as a tin-god.

Speaking to me immediately after their summit which took place at Urualla town hall, the president of FIYA, Comr.Izuchukwu Umeh a graduate of Imo State University highlighted on some of the points raised and contained in the communique which according to him will be made availlable to the press today. According to him, They condemned the way and manner Okorocha has destroyed their cultural heritage and that of other Imo communities for political reasons.

They also lammented on how Okorocha has continued to fight some notable sons of Ideato who he perceives to be in the opposition. He gave instances of how one of their sons who is an executive director(E.D) with Diamond bank lost his job recently because of the governor’s influence on the bank’s management as he believes that the former Diamond Bank staff helps facilitate loans for the former PDP chairman Eze Duruiheoma and other PDP faithfuls in the area. They advised Okorocha to drop his ambition and allow Okigwe and Owerri zone to rule or face disgrace.


He described the summit as a success while urging me and the rest of Imo people to watch out for a detailed communique on some of our local tabloids. Comr.Izuchukwu expressed his annoyance over my lateness to the summit depite the invitation extended to me to be one of the discussants. I gave my reasons which happens to be the difficulty I encounterd on the road that stretched from Okwelle to Urualla as a result of the deplorable state of that road.

I spent more than 1hour on that road and I believe people who have used it will understand what am talking about. It’s simply a death trap.
