    • I am happy we have illustrious Sons that promote the image of our revered Mgbidi Town!
      Let’s join forces to make it better.

  1. I’m from Mgbidi town, Okuwdor precisely. I’m proud of my town, the gateway to IMO state. I’m happy about this mega international market coming to my own town, that is a big start in development for us as indigents.

  2. I just wish to correct the spelling of the first village listed in the write up. It’s IMEOHA, not IMEHA. Thanks.

  3. I am from Ugbele and always proud of my town Mgbidi. They are very accommodating and nice people. A land of progress.
