Viewpoint: The ‘Mini-War’ In Imo State.
Blood flowed in Owerri on Sunday, 21 February 2021.
Former governor, Rochas Anayo Okorocha led some people to forcefully reclaim an estate the Imo State Government seized in the past week.
The State Government alleges that the Spring Palm Estate should be Imo State’s property as Okorocha built it with state funds.
The Hope Uzodinma government had earlier taken over the Eastern Palm University. Imo State secured a license for the institution from the National Universities Commission. Okorocha allegedly assigned 90% of the university’s shareholding to the Rochas Okorocha Foundation and Rochas Okorocha. He signed for Imo State claiming Public-Private Partnership.
The mini-war in Imo State brings to the fore the issues in The Igbo Wars. I have written about The Igbo Wars in Businessday and Thisday newspapers over the last two years.
The Igbo Wars are about culture, politics and the strategic choices for the future of the people. Election 2019 brought it to the fore but masquerading as political battles.
It is about the values and norms of the people, leadership and direction.

Imo State has a large representation of the political personalities that make the Igbo question their essence and values.
It is poetic that Governor Hope Uzodinma, even with his entry strategy to Douglas House, is taking on fighting for the people.
However, the good people of Imo State must insist that the terms of engagement be within the law.
