'You're A Clown', Fani-Kayode Slams Okorocha Over Zuma's Statue Erection

We must put African unity into practice — Zuma

Several netizens on Twitter wondered what Zuma has done for Imo State or Nigeria to merit such honour, while others noted that despite the role the country played to bring the apartheid regime in South Africa to an end, Nigerians were being killed in the country on a regular basis and Zuma had done nothing to check that.

Nigerian multi-billionaire and the governor for Imo State Owelle Okorocha also conferred the highest award in the state, the Imo State Award, on Zuma.

"It is the same South Africa where many Nigerians majorly of the eastern extraction are being killed on weekly bases".

Unconfirmed reports also have it that Okorocha may have spent a whopping N520 million to build the statue in honour of Jacob Zuma.

Former aviation minister, Fani-Kayode has blasted Rochas Okorocha, the Imo state governor, for erecting a statue of South Africa president, in Owerri.

According to the Nigeria Consulate in South Africa, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate, IPID, in South Africa has begun investigation into the killing of Badmus, the first time an independent unit will be conducting such an investigation.

The team that scores the greater number of goals in both matches qualifies for Russian Federation 2018. Chile at No. 9 is the highest-ranked team eliminated from the World Cup.

To many people, President Zuma, doesn't exactly possess the "Perfect Role Model" skill set, following his back and forth romance with indictments and corruption allegations.

Mr. Zuma has faced criticism for remaining silent on the matter.

The visit happened just as South Africa's Supreme Court ruled that President Zuma should face corruption charges.

"Though we recognize the federal government's position on not hosting President Zuma in Abuja as his visit would have questioned the anti-corruption policy of President Buhari", said Mr. Suraj. "It is a case of show me your friend and I'll tell you who you are".
