Still on ZUMA’S VISIT TO IMO
As a result of the visit, it has created so much attentions within and outside the state. So many Imolites and non Imolites, politicians, elder statemen, etc. have taken to the social media to either bless or rain curses on the IMO state governor over his recent decision.
Some blessed and praised him for being the best governor of the people and in Africa while majority rained curses on him saying that he spent N520 million naira on a project to honour a President whose country is busy killing Nigerians and it didn’t end there he went further to give pensioners in the state bounce cheque while some complained of owning the state workers of some months salaries.
Some went on to say that they do see Imolites as the most educated people in Nigeria but from what has happened so far, it shows that , that mindset is now zero with the rate at which Imolites allowed a man to deceive them and yet they still praised him, is it not stupidity?
