Nigeria honours Zuma with giant statue
President Jacob Zuma has been honoured with yet another statue, this time in Nigeria.
On Saturday, the Imo State unveiled the giant statue and even named a street after the visiting president during his recent trip to the country.
In addition the state governor, Owelle Okorocha, conferred on Zuma the Imo Merit Award, the highest award in the state conferred on those who have made a difference in the development of their communities.
Zuma was on a working visit to Zambia, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo to strengthen socio-economic relations and other co-operations.
Both Nigerians and South Africans were quick to take to social media to comment about the decision.
I believe a stronger partnership between Nigeria and Sourh Africa would benefit us greatly. “No Nigerian citizen should be killed.”— Plaid Jacob Zuma (@Plaid_Zuma) October 16, 2017
With hundreds of counts of corruption charges against him, Jacob Zuma, somewhere in Nigeria 🇳🇬 stands as a deity. The gods must be crazy.— Nathan (@gempluz) October 15, 2017
