The Imo State government has said it has no regrets over the statue of South Africa President, Jacob Zuma erected in Owerri, Imo State.

The Zuma Stature has led to widespread uproar across the State and beyond.

According to a statement by Chief Press Secretary to Imo State Governor, Sam Onwuemedo   he said “And in case these “Galatians” do not know, if 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. 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.

He lashed out at the PDP in the state saying “the PDP in Imo is dead. The remaining people in the Party will soon join APGA because Imo people have Continued to ask them what they did with the 12 years’ mandate Imo people gave to them, beyond rampant Gala nights and drinking of Moet, Xo, Hennessy etal. And for two or three of such people in APC who think that they can make a headway by insulting the governor, we are only waiting and watching to see the extent they can go”

He continued “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”
