Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has said he owes no person any apology for erecting the statue of the South African President, Jacob Zuma, in the state.

This was contained in a statement signed by this Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, on Wednesday.

Okorocha stated that those pouring invectives on him for his decision to honour Zuma were his political detractors and enemies of progress.

He said, “If all we need to do to attract good things or investments to Imo State is erecting statues, then, we have no option but to erect as many of such structures as possible, we owe no one any apology. I made a promise to open Imo State’s doors to the rest of the world for good and I am doing that and I cannot be intimidated to stop this.”


He identified the “enemies of progress” as the Peoples Democratic Party faithful, who he said “had not been happy with me and since my Rescue Mission Government started in 2011.”
