SEE Christmas Tree That Cost Imo State Government N600 Million (PHOTO)


The Imo state government has broken a record
by erecting the tallest Christmas tree in Nigeria.Earlier this month, Governor Rochas Okorocha
reportedly approved N600 million for this
Christmas tree and New Year decorations.
The cost is really shocking considering the fact
that the state workers have not been paid
salaries for several months.
Undoubtedly, the tree and its price have triggered
emotional reactions among Nigerians who
started blaming Governor Okorocha, appealing to
his conscience.
Meanwhile, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, a former
deputy speaker of the House of Representatives,
also criticized the governor for spending such
huge sum of money on Christmas tree and
decorations.
“It is ridiculous and indeed smacks of
insensitivity for this government to spend over
N600 million on decorations when families can
no longer afford their meals and basic needs as a
result of non-payment of salaries, pensions and
other entitlements,” he noted.
