Governor Rochas Okorcha of Imo state has revealed that he would erect three more statues. He revealed this when he addressed newsmen in Owerri, the Imo state capital on the letters written by both ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo and former military ruler, Ibrahim Babangida.
The governor said Imo state has lined up activities to mark its 42 anniversary and will also host the IMO Merit Award where 42 persons shall be honored.
He listed Chief Sam Mbakwe; Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and Dr. Michael Okpara for special post-humous recognition. The trio, whose statues would be erected, would be bestowed with the highest award of the state.
The award committee will be headed by the Speaker of the Imo state House of Assembly.
Commenting on the letters, Governor Okorocha said no amount of letters can stop President Muhammadu Buhari from running for President in 2019 if indeed he has made up his mind.
