    This is a good news to hear but i like them to focus on our tertiary institutions more especially at federal Polytechnic Nekede, because the way they have been attacking us there is unbearable. So please i will suggest that the government should share them into many places or better still give us their cell phone number in case of emergency or even in the night so that we can alert them. Thanks for reading this notice

    the chief, the gov. he is doing great. we do not want a state where we continually look over our shoulders hoping no one is after us for any reason. the government protects its people and that is what the gov. is trying or rather doing.

    Recently the human rights activists and his friend was kidnapped also so many others. Kidnappers in IMO STATE are having a free atmosphere doing their crimes without any disturbance. We don’t know what the police are doing in the state, police presence are not felt in the state. Governor Okorocha has is a failure in IMO. He should not brag about curbing crimes ,He is their facilitator. GOd will surely visit him .The blood of his victims will be on his head.what has a start will surely have an end. Only God is protecting imo people. Our ancestors ,ala imo will drag okorocha to his reward good or bad .
