Governor Rochas Okorocha has promised to give land to the winner of Big Brother Naija Reality Show, 2018 Edition, Mr. Miracle Igbokwe in any choice place in the State to enable him return home and build a house of his own.
The governor equally made a Cash donation of N2 million to Mr. Igbokwe and also extended another N2 million Cash donation to Miss Nina Chinonso who participated in the event.

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.

This is the reason for the honour and to say welcome back home”.
