Governor Rochas Okorocha Blasted Over Erection Of Jacob Zuma’s Statue

Currently trending on social media is Rochas Okorocha, governor of Imo state, over a statue erected in honour of President Jacob Zuma of South Africa.

Zuma is on a two-day working visit to Imo state and was conferred with chieftaincy title –Ochiagha di oha mma of Igbo land – and also given the Imo Merit Award – the highest honour in the state, with a street named after him.

However, the issue that is causing controversy now is the giant-sized statue of Zuma in the state. Many are befuddled on why a state which is owing salaries would spend millions of naira on such craft.
