From The Honourable Commissioner's Desk

My Ministry which is in charge of Lands, Survey and Urban Planning is one of the biggest Ministries in Imo State Civil Service. My predecessors in this Ministry right from the creation of Imo State have made positive contribution towards the development of Imo State knowing quite well that the basics of development of any state is Land, that was why the creation of Imo State in 1976 attracted the acquisition of 72.58qkm of lands for the purpose of the development of Owerri Capital Territory. The acquisition was backed up by Edict Nos. 1, 3 and 6 of the 1976 Imo State Law. There was a corresponding cooperation from the owners of these Lands who saw the move as a way of contributing their own quota to the development of the young State. Right from there, the master plan of Imo State was laid by the efforts of the Ministry in conjunction with some expatriates.
