Owerri held to standstill as deaf and dumb block access

From Marame

It was drama Monday,july 31,2017 in Owerri as the Imo State Association of Deaf and Dumb blocked access to Government House  making the operators of government activities and visitors to using the back door to gain entrance.

The members of the Association in their claims as made available on their banners read that the State government owes them backlog of subventions, refused to employ their members with the State’s school for the deaf and dumb being in a sordid state, and in effect making learning difficult among numerous demands.

The group having waited earnestly from the morning hours when they arrived for audience with the State governor, Rochas Okorocha or his representative went wild as offices began to close by blocking all access road close to the government house.

The rampaging youths made all businesses around government house round-about close shop early as people scamper for safety while motorists were turned back forcing commuter trekking long distances to board taxi or the tricycles.

Investigations by Imostateonline.com showed the members of Association visited the State government days earlier to register their demands but left with a promise to come back if the government failed to look into their situation.
