Senator Rochas Okorocha was given a chieftaincy title in President Muhammadu Buhari’s hometown, Daura.
NEWS MAIL NG reports that after receiving the former Imo State Governor promised to build a free university in Daura.
Rochas Okorocha said the Rochas Okorocha Foundation will build the university, Premium Times reports.
The former governor was recently conferred with the traditional title of Maga Alherin Kasar Hausa by the Emir of Daura, Umar Faruk.
Isa Halidu, who represented Mr Okorocha at an event in Daura on Saturday, August 7, said students would enjoy free tuition and accommodation at the university.
“Because the Emir of Daura made me a traditional titleholder, I am going to give a gift, perhaps, that would never be forgotten. I will build an Islamic university with modern facilities under Rochas Okorocha Foundation and to be commissioned by myself in Daura town,” Okorocha said.
