Zuma’s Resignation: Okorocha Reacts To Calls For Demolition Of Statute by AnotherZik: 2:48pm On Feb 16
Following the attacks coming his way over the effigy of Jacob Zuma in Owerri now that the immediate past South African president has resigned, the Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha has insisted that the statute would remain as Zuma is not the first public office holder to resign from office.

Zuma had in a televised address on Wednesday, resigned as President of South Africa following calls on him to do so by the ruling African National Congress, ANC. Zuma, who survived half a dozen no-confidence votes has been under criminal investigations and allegations of corruption culminating in his stepping down.
But Okorocha insists that his government has no reason to pull down the statute of the man erected in Owerri, the state capital, reminding all who care to know that Zuma was still president when the statute was put up in his honour, and that the South African president was not impeached but voluntarily relinquished power.

The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Sam Onwuemedo, in a telephone conversation with DAILY POST, said, “Opinions can be divided. There are those who are calling for it to be pulled down, there are those who are calling for it to stay. So, it depends on which one government listens to. We have no reason to remove what we have erected, simple. We have done it, we have done it.

Dear Gov. Okorocha,
I come to you in peace.
You moulded the statue of Mugabe; he resigned a couple of weeks later.
You moulded President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and she has now lost her seat to George Weah.
You moulded President Jacob Zuma; he resigned.
Please do us a favour in Nigeria, mould General Buhari's statue.
TREAT AS URGENT

Pulling it down or not...it does not erase the fact that J.Z was once the president of south africa. His name has entered history books.
