The Governor of Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma has been lambasted on social media after he was seen wearing a designer wristwatch reportedly worth four hundred and fifty-five million Naira.
According to reports, the Jacob & Co. Astronomia Sky White Diamond 18-piece Limited edition worn by Uzodinma is allegedly worth $785,496 which is equivalent to N455 million at $580 per dollar.
An architect and building engineer, Adeola Olutayo, who spoke with SaharaReporters, said N5 to N6 million can build a block of six classrooms in Nigeria, excluding the price of land, which is lacking in Imo State.
This stirred angry reactions from many social media users, who stated that there are numerous abandoned projects and bad roads in Imo State.
