Rochas Okorocha, the governor of Imo State was part of the President Muhammadu Buhari delegation to Washington in July.
Okorocha ensured his pictures were taken with President Barack Obama and billboards of Okorocha with Obama were placed in several locations in the state capital Owerri.
A source has informed us that Okorocha has form in this sort of thing. He went to America in 1992 and managed to go on a tourist visit of the White House. Just like the trip with Buhari, Okorocha made sure the occasion was recorded with photographs.
The source said he saw Okorocha at a mechanic’s workshop in Owerri showing off the pictures to the visibly impressed mechanics 23 years ago.
Sadly for Okorocha, many Nigerians were not impressed by his Obama billboards, judging by the backlash they received on social media.
