Imo state Governor Rochas Okorocha on Thursday rewarded 2018 Big Brother Naija winner, Miracle Igbokwe, and the fourth runner-up, Nina Nonso, with N2m each.
The governor also promised Miracle a plot of land in any location of his choice.
Miracle and Nina are Indigenes of the Southeast state.
“We are gathered here to welcome our son who has made us proud. Miracle is our son who went to South Africa for the Big Brother Naija Show,” Okorocha said during the visit of Miracle and Nina to the Government House in Owerri, the state capital.
”He spoke well of his state and was a good ambassador of his state. For this, we thought, it is proper that we receive him.
“Usually, our state does not engage in receiving people for outings they have made, unless we consider such an outing one that has positive bearing to the image of the State.
”One thing outstanding is that these two great participants, Miracle and Nina, spoke highly of Imo state. They stood tall and proud of their state, in South Africa. This is the reason for the honour and to say welcome back home.”
In his response, Miracle commended the governor for the gesture.
“I am excited about our governor because of his educational strides. This is a great gift to humanity,” he said.
