Corn[edit]

This page links to the disambiguation page Corn, but I'm not sure which sense is intended. Can you help? Thanks. — Pekinensis 23:08, 6 May 2005 (UTC)

Mayor[edit]

PM News gives the mayor's name as Oshieze Vincent Ehirim, not as Ken Onyima.[1]--Ankimai 22:43, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

I just came across Ken Onyima and deleted it. The only connection I could find between this Onyima fellow and Ehirim is this, which says "Mr. Onyima introduced the Honorable Vincent Ehirim, Mayor of Owerri Nigeria, Gresham’s Sister City." Probably just a mistake. Picaroon (t) 20:08, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Population[edit]

An article from the Lagos Guardian says that Owerri's population "is about a quarter of Lagos".[2] That would be ten times as much as the figure currently given.--Ankimai 22:43, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
