It's Not Over: Okorocha To Unveil Obasanjo, Ekwueme, Awolowo's Statutes

The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha is not done with the erection of statues in the state as he is set to unveil 10 more statues as a recognition for their selfless contributions to the development of the state, Nigeria and the African continent.

“With the statues, the people would have been inducted into the Imo Hall of Fame and have received the highest award in the state called the Imo Merits Award.”

This is coming on the heels of the unveiling of the statues of two African presidents, Jacob Zuma of South Africa and Ellen Sirleaf Johnson of Liberia, an action that has sparked off heated debate and wide condemnation as to the necessity.
