Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state on Sunday unveiled a statue of South African President Jacob Zuma in Owerri.
The statue was unveiled after Zuma was conferred with the Chieftaincy title “Ochiaga Imo” by Eze Imo, His Royal Highness Samuel Ohiri.
The building of the statue has, however, triggered a backlash with people taking to social media platforms to make scathing remarks.
See some reactions below;
Rochas Okorocha should have just stayed a benevolent billionaire. A statue for Jacob Zuma is the height of insanity at a time like this.
