Gov. Rochas Okorocha unveils giant statue of Liberian President Ellen Sirleaf; explains reason for erecting statues in Imo

Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, has unveiled yet another statue in Imo state; this time around to honour visiting Liberian president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

The Governor unveiled President Sirleaf’s statue in Owerri during the culmination of her 2-day visit to Imo state today.

Just Last month, Gov. Okorocha, in similar fashion unvailed a statue of the South African president, Jacob Zuma, when he visited Imo state on two-day visit.

Shortly after unveiling the statue of the Liberian President, Gov. Okorocha was asked by newsmen why he has taken to building statues for foreign leaders and he replied;

“To immortalize people so our children yet unborn can read a piece of them. History is dying in Africa. We must keep history alive. In the next 100 years to come, most of us will not be here but this will stand for children to read stories and mold their character. If leaders are not mortalized, there will not be history for children yet unborn”.

    Clueless man, wasting money on irrelevant things yet his people are suffering. No good roads. Children yet unborn don’t need to see all these statues to know about them, Google is always there to give informations.
