Jacob Zuma’s visit to Nigeria was as a result of the critics his statue that was erected in Imo State attracted. Surge had earlier published Nigerians view in respect of the governor act of erecting Zuma’s statue, whom they believe had done nothing to deserve such recognition.

Notably, focus was lost on the teeming children rescued by the governor through the Rochas Foundation. The children, drawn from several African countries, were specially honoured by the celebrant.

Governor Rochas Okorocha’s Foundation was known even before he became the governor of Imo State. Many thought the foundation operates in Nigeria alone, not knowing it spreads to other African countries.

The 55th birthday celebration was an opportunity to reveal the clear intention of the governor towards other African countries. During same celebration period it was better understood why the Imo State governor erected the statue of the South African Jacob Zuma and named a newly constructed road after him. More unveiling include the Rochas Foundation role towards children from other African countries who were hungry, abandoned and less privileged.

For the governor, his highly ambitious quest to reserve a special place for the African child was made known during his 55th birthday celebration. He is also determined to drive the project to a high level so even his haters will not be able to comprehend.

The master plan is the setup of the Rochas Foundation College of Africa in Owerri Imo State, with five orphans each from 55 African countries. This dream of the governor has become a reality as the children had resume at the beginning of the first term of the 2017/2018 session.

The condition of some of the benefiting children is as follows:

First is Hada Sue who lost her mother during childbirth. She had been surviving in a local orphanage until Rochas Foundation found her. The story of Hawa Karsieh is no less interesting. She lost her mother in 2011 and her father in 2012. Life as an orphan had been very difficult for her. She was in an orphanage boarding school, unsure of what the future holds or would offer until Rochas foundation found her.

For Abdulah Farsahwuo, Rochas Foundation was God sent. The Ebola pandemic almost wiped out his entire family including his father and mother. The young Abdulah was living with his aunt as a house help without going to school until Rochas Foundation found him. By and large, it is definitely impossible to seek to tell the story of 275 orphans quartered and learning in the Rochas Foundation College of Africa in Owerri. And posterity would definitely be kind to him each time attempt is made to review what Rochas has done.
