Celebrity barman, Okechukwu Pascal popularly called Cubana Chiefpriest has defended the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma over his designer wristwatch worth N455 million.
Naija News earlier reported that Hope Uzodinma came under heavy criticism after he was spotted with the wristwatch alongside some All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftains.
The value of 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 claimed that there are numerous abandoned projects and bad roads in Imo State.
Reacting to the backlash from many Nigerians, Cubana Chiefpriest in a post shared on Instagram urged people to calm down stating that the governor’s wristwatch isn’t original.
He wrote: “No be original joor, Make una dey clam down”
