The Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has said he was ready to invest more resources to develop the zoological garden in the state to international standard.
According to him, Imo government would support any idea that would promote nature.
Okorocha made the promise when the Association of Zoological Gardens and Parks, led by Dr Olajumoke Morenikeji, its National President, paid him a courtesy visit shortly after inspecting the state zoo.
“I am ready to invest more in the zoo because not only will it promote nature, but will serve as a major tourism development in the country.
“I am fully in support of your visit and Imo Government will donate land and structures if you can come up with better ideas,” he said.
Okorocha urged Nigerians to go back to nature, adding that any state that was not promoting nature might end up losing the nature’s gifts.
