However, they got more than a grand welcome at the state government exco chamber. The governor also promised to give scholarship for his commercial pilot license and a plot of land to Captain Miracle Igbokwe in any choice place in the state to enable him return home and build a house of his own, adding that Miracle has made the state proud by emerging the winner of the show.
He had this to say: “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. 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”.
The governor explained that “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”.
The governor also gave Nina, Teddy and BamBam N2m each. He has also promised to support Nina in the completion of her course.
Looks like Nina finally got to meet Miracle's mother.
The governor, however, charged Igbokwe to use his fame to propagate the ideas he believes in and never allow it to enter his head, promising to collaborate with him in seeing to the establishment of a pilot school in Imo state.
In his speech, elated Igbokwe thanked the governor for finding them worthy to be honoured, adding that they are proud of their governor and his invaluable achievements in the state especially in area of education.
