The Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha on Tuesday unveiled a statue of President Muhammadu Buhari in the state.
Buhari was on Tuesday expected in Imo to commission, among other projects, a statue of him, constructed by the Imo state government. But, the visit was postponed as the president was then yet to return from Saudi Arabia where he performed this year’s holy pilgrimage.
However, pictures of Buhari’s statue yet to be commissioned have gone viral on social media and stirred reactions from Nigerians.
@Ovie199985 “Imo state is lucky Okorocha tenure is over because at the rate this man is erecting statues in another 10yrs the population of statues will overtake humans.”
@OkuchukwuGA “Gov Rochas Okorocha still thinks he is the presidents blue-eyed which is why he keeps on pleasing the president even to the extent of unveiling a statue but I doubt if Buhari would #ToeThatPath of telling EFCC to stop their investigation
@TheBlarkshow “See as president Buhari looks healthier here than in real life.”
@YarinnyaAbba “And people are hungry in the state..Lost priority.”
@Okestalyf “Dear Rochas Okorocha,I come to you in peace. You molded the statue of Mugabe, he resigned a few weeks later, you molded Ellen Sirleaf & she lost her seat to George Weah, you molded Jacob Zuma, he also resigned. Thank you for molding President Buhari’s statue.”
@TaiwoOadeleke16 “I believe that the new administration will definitely pull all this nonsense down what is really wrong with that man self even if used to smoke Marijuana in the morning he should be ok in the evening now what a crazy system.”
@ObassyEmmy “This may not be relevant now but those statuses will have some relevance sometime in future. Art never disappoints. They should just make Rochas Min. of Art, Statuses and Culture in Nigeria. I promise he will excel well in that field. My admirable governor.”
@Wagesden “If he likes he should unveil the status of Ojukwu, Ihedioha will pull them down.”
@Darlingtom “EFCC go still wait for you when you step down.”
@Ileladewa “So that Buhari can appoint you among his minister. Wastage resources.”
@Ifediba5 “Is this achievement or wasting of taxpayers? To me, it is a waste of resources meant to affect the lives of people he is ruling.”
@SinachOkee “Even this gimmick won’t save this clown, EFCC is waiting on the wings to pick him up!
@Eddiexy “Welcome to IMO state. The home of statutes.”
