Nigerians come for Gov Rochas Okorocha over Obama photo

The photo of Imo State Gover, Rochas Okorocha with USA President, Barack Obama that was made into a billboard is drawing comments from Nigerians.

Gov. Rochas Okorocha with Barack Obama shaking hands

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, is in the news for all the wrong reasons, going by the kind of bashing he is getting from Nigerians for making most of a handshake he had with American President, Barack Obama during the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to the USA.

During the meeting, Okorocha had a handshake session with Obama and there was so much fanfare about it but on his return to the country, he made a huge billboard of the photo and is being displayed strategically in some major streets in Owerri, the state capital.

This has drawn a lot of condemnation from many Nigerians who see such act as vain and misplaced instead of doing things that will impact on the lives of the people of the state.
