The of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha on Tuesday unveiled a statue of Muhammadu in the state.

DAILY POST recalls that Buhari was on Tuesday expected in Imo to commission, among other projects, a statue of him, constructed by the Imo state government. But, the visit was postponed as the president was then yet to return from Saudi Arabia where he performed this year’s holy pilgrimage.

However, pictures of Buhari’s statue yet to be commissioned have gone viral on social media and stirred reactions from Nigerians.

Here are some comments gathered by DAILY POST from :
