The Imo State Government has said it is ready to be probed over the erection of the statues of Presidents Jacob Zuma and Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf of South Africa and Liberia respectively.
The Socio Economic Rights and Accountability Project had called for a probe of Rochas Okorocha over the statue it estimated at N1bn.
What the government said:
Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Sam Onwuemedo, said the state government has nothing to hide.
He added that the state government had, from the outset, given indications on the purposes of the coming of these African leaders and who invited them.
“I insist that that should have been the way to go,” Onwuemeodo said.
