Okorocha raised eyebrows across the continent in October after he unveiled a statue dedicated to South African President Jacob Zuma – a man who has no apparent links to the south-eastern state.

He later unveiled statues dedicated to Liberian President Ellen Sirleaf-Johnson and her Ghanaian conterpart President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo.
