Press Release On Gov Rochas' Statue Of President Zuma In Imo Sstate

Shaking my head at Gov Rochas Of Imo State!!!







United Labour Congress Of Nigeria Issues Press Release On President Zuma's Statue In Imo State.Call It An Insensitive Aberration


We observed with consternation and disgust the shameful event that was the erection of the statue in Owerri honouring Jacob Zuma the president of South Africa by the Governor of Imo state including naming a street in the state capital after the President. This is highly insensitive and contemptuous of not only the people of Imo state but also possess the danger of spreading its evil bile throughout Nigeria if not roundly condemned and excoriated by well-meaning Nigerians.

We are not against honouring great men and women who have contributed positively to the development of the state to encourage them to do more but we know that whatever must have informed the choice of Jacob Zuma at this time must be everything but altruistic and patriotism. How he became a Nigerian or Imo state champion cannot be explained and beats our imagination.








Zuma is neither a Nigerian patriot nor has he contributed anything to the Nigerian project nor the Imo state effort at development. He is not Shehu Shagari nor, Sam Mbakwe, Awolowo or Zik of Africa neither is he any of those patriots from Imo state or other parts of Nigeria who are well-deserving of such honour and who has not been honoured. He is definitely not deserving a statue in Imo state talk less of naming a street after him.


ULC believes that it is highly insensitive for Okorocha to have chosen at this time to give such honour to a man under whose watch Nigerians have been murdered both by state agencies and the masses his leadership aroused by negative propaganda against Nigerians. What this means is that Rochas has endorsed the killings of Nigerians in South Africa under this man’s watch and is celebrating it here in Nigeria for all of us to see so that those who lost their loved ones in those unfortunate xenophobic attacks in South Africa will continue living in mourning as they wake up daily to behold the face of Zuma’s statue. Rochas is rubbing our faces in the mess!


We also wonder why Okorocha thinks that a man who has almost ruined the Economy of his nation and whose corrupt and itchy fingers have become documented to the extent that the South African Judiciary has decided a few days ago to resurrect the Hundreds of cases against him in the country. What will Nigerians and especially the people of Imo state learn from such a man? Perhaps Okorocha endorses and celebrates corruption which may be a sign of the way he has also governed the people of his state. This is truly unfortunate.



For a state Governor who is in the habit of owing workers’ salaries and worst still owing pensioners months in arrears including as alleged by some of issuing dud cheques to some of them, we wonder where he got the millions with which he embarked on this white elephant project thus path to infamy..


Giving Zuma a traditional title in Nigeria especially in Imo state is truly a celebration of mediocrity and xenophobia and should not have been allowed by a Government that has the interest of the people at heart. We ask; what is the benefit of this for the people of Imo state and Nigeria in general? What is in this for our democracy? What is in this for the war against corruption? What is in this for the promised change which was the mantra upon which the Government of Okorocha came to power? Has Okorocha put his personal ambitions and pursuits ahead of the interests of the people of the state or has he allowed his basal inclinations to overshadow the development of Imo state? We are indeed living in worrying times!


ULC urges the people of Imo state and indeed join other patriotic Nigerians who feel outraged over this very unpatriotic and treacherous act to immediately demand that Okorocha pulls down the infamous statue. As long as that statue stands, it remains a standing disgrace and shame to the perfidy which Rochas’ government has become to Imo state and indeed the whole of Nigeria. It becomes a living testimony to the apparent thoughtlessness of not only Rochas but most members of the nation’s ruling elite.


People of Imo should demand a return of the money used in this ignoble project and March to the Legislature to demand that Okorocha apologises to the citizens of the state for bringing this national shame and disgrace to them. We must not allow this mockery of our national values as typified by the action of the Governor to spread to other parts of the nation and that is our fear as a labour centre. Evil has a way of spreading fast and it is our duty to contain it before it does.

Once again the ULC demands that Okorocha removes the ignominious name of Zuma from the streets of Owerri and the ignoble statue dismantled immediately to avoid our mobilising against it and pulling it down ourselves. We cannot allow a reminder of corruption and governance ineptitude to continue staring us on the face daily. In trying to honour Zuma, Okorocha has brought dishonour to his  father's land!Nigerians cannot allow this insult to stand! That Zuma statue insults our collective sensibilities as a nation and diminishes our national pride and must be pulled down now!

If a young person should insult Rochas and call him a useless man.

And I juts realised I wouldn't frown at it.
Infact I may even LOL.

He takes the crown for the most incompetent,insensitive Governor.

Chidinma Grace said...

Can't they impeach him? Shouldn't the federal government do something about this? What a disgrace.

attention said...

If he likes Zuma that much, he could have place the statue in his sitting room and name one of his sons or grand sons after him.

When Rochas has a lot of investments in South Africa. He bought a house for his side chic in a high brow estate in Johannesburg. I pity the people of Imo state.

Planting the spirit of 'rape'....(he be rapist). Planting all other evil spirits, demons that are in Zuma to make land fall in Imo State.
This ignorance has a tremendous negative spiritual impact on that state. That statue should be brought down!

But the writer is right. I thought of all the patriotic Nigerians, already gone and still alive. To think the budget for that statue was about N100m (i read) money that would have been used for much more important things. Very distasteful and i hope something can be done about it.

It can only be Rochas..

I pray this okoroawusa is sighted somewhere abroad by Nigerians. What they will do to him eh. Bloody beast.

ego lag said...

Thank you NLC for speaking for us. Rochas is a big disgrace. What have we the Imolites done to deserve this curse? Celebrating a corrupt leader shows that he's not far from the act himself. Imolites should demand this statue be removed and the so-called name be expunged immediately

Arsenal Firstlady said...

rochas is the most stupid, senseless moron on this planet earth. Of what economic value is this insignificant statue of a man his country men are killing Nigerians everyday? And to think that this idiot rochas is oweing pensioners for over 2years salaries and he's building a statue of a stupid and corrupt man like him. Devil will punish you rochas. Your generation will never know peace. Everything Evil will be your portion.

jelly said...

I don't understand the connections between this 2

Nemerem said...

Seeing that they're best buddies, he would have just erected this statue in his compoud. Or as bv Attention said, named one of his kids/grandkids after Zuma.
There's really no sense in this.
Thanks ULCN.

Anonymous said...

Rochas is only paving a clear path for himself and his family so they can run to SA and hide under the protection of zuma as soon as his tenure is over cos he knows naija will be too hot for him. He is the worst thing that ever happened to imolites.

Anonymous said...

Is it not Imo State people that voted him? When Nigerians have refused to vote right this is what they'll keep getting. Imbeciles as leaders

soul child said...

Think money laundering and exile destination

Jeni_zee said...

He is owing salaries and he did this statute.. this can only happen in Africa cos they know we can’t do nothing and have no human rights

Anonymous said...

You all can call him Okorohausa or whatever Hausa name you want to call him. The fact remains that an Hausa man can never do this only an Igbo man cam do such a thing as give a foreigner a chieftaincy title, erect a statue and also name a road after him.
