Article: How They Killed Imo State Oil Producing Area Development Commission (ISOPADEC)


By Kenneth Uwadi

I made a telling revelation that the sum of 1 billion naira belonging to pensioners in the 27 LGA’s of Imo State was "squandered" by Sir Jude Ejiogu the current Chief of Staff to the Governor of Imo State. Ejiogu squandered this money when he was the Chairman of Imo State Local Government Service Commission. I lamented the "squandering of the significant sum of 1 billion naira and another 3 billion naira looted by the Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly Mr Benjamin Uwajumogu. I cried out because most Imolites but especially the poor continue to suffer the effect of failing public health and education system as well as decrepit infrastructure and battered institutions. I highlighted what I see as the dawn of naked impunity in Imo State.

Article: Why Imo State Government Is Keeping Activist Samuelson Iwuoha In Jail

 Activist Samuelson Iwuoha


By Kenneth Uwadi

Wherever And whenever there is death, flesh also becomes visible; and if one observes closely too, some vultures must be lurking around the corner to feast on the flesh. Indeed, vultures are evil birds; if not how could one possibly explain away the fact that they are always available, and are at their best, nodding their ugly heads in sadistic happiness, only when the news is about death and the resultant availability of flesh? No sane human being deliberately fraternizes with them unless that person too is evil. But vultures are not the real focus of this write up; but much more seriously, this article is aimed at drawing out some striking similarities between the evil bird of prey, the vulture and the current evil men we have in Imo State that are holding the position of Governor of Imo and Speaker of Imo House of Assembly.

Okorocha(L) and Ihedioha
By Kenneth Uwadi

The point should be noted that the Rochas Okorocha led government of Imo State does not deserve to stay a day longer in power, let alone stay till 2015, not with the 'miserable 20,000 naira a month' called salary he pays to some selected Imo youths who are placed as casuals. Casual work status is a crime against humanity.
