The Health Sector in Imo State under Ohakim

1 Mins read

This blog will remain apolitical…even in a climate of intense politics in Nigeria. We will not suggest how people should vote, but we will try to point you to some things that should influence your decisions.

Enough has been written on the fate of the people of Imo state in the past 4 years. Vanguard reports that judges in Imo State are on strike over the kidnap of one of their colleagues – yes judges! At least doctors are no longer alone in receiving this treatment in Ohakim’s Imo. We will not report further on the catholic priests being beaten and their appeasement. Citizens of Imo State already know that their resources now and in the future are being ‘wisely’ used for the dredging of Nwaorie river. Citizens of Imo know, they are not stupid!


Below we share pictures from the tertiary health care sector in Imo State, taken late in 2010….then we let you decide! You have a vote in April 2011, make it count. 

This is the “new” face of Imo in 2011
…the one you don’t see
