Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has defended his decision to erect the statue of south Africa President, Jacob Zuma in the state.
The statue which was erected on Sunday has generated criticism, especially from the United Labour Congress, who have demanded that the governor pull the statue down.
However Rochas in his own statement the statue is to attract investment into the state, adding the he owes nobody an apology for his decision.
“And in case these “Galatians” do not know not all we need to do to attract good things or investments to Imo is erecting statues, then, we have no option than to erect as many of such structures as possible,” the statement read.
“We owe no one apology. Rochas made a promise to open the doors of Imo to the rest of the world, for good and he is doing that and we cannot be deterred by these enemies of our people.
“If it was in the days of PDP, schools and markets would have been shot down. And roads closed because President Zuma was coming. But none of such things was done because Rochas and his government have human face.
“The PDP for the 12 years they held sway never attracted any meaningful visitor to the State except PDP NEC members who were coming to loot the state.” (TV360 Nigeria)
