Branded Ortom wheelbarrows are PhotoShopped –APC councilorshp aspirant

By  | 

A photograph of wheelbarrows with the name of Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, inscribed on them has been causing debates on social media.

Some social media commentators have held reservations about the usefulness and propriety of the wheelbarrows bearing the inscription “Gov Ortom for you.”

Others are of the view that it could not be for youth engagement or skills development as claimed.

And while the Benue State Government has yet to respond to the issue, online publication, Idoma Voice, reports that a member of the All Progressives Congress and councilorship aspirant in the forthcoming local government election in Benue State, Dan Atayi, has described the pictures as “handiwork of Adobe PhotoShop experts.”

Atayi, who is vying for councillorship seat in Okpokwu Local Government Area of the state, said the pictures, which are currently trending on social media, were targeted at rubbishing Governor Samuel Ortom’s integrity.

Reacting to a post on Facebook, Atayi said, “The administration of Gov Ortom at the state level and that of President Buhari at the Federal level, are keen at encouraging agriculture.

“Today, the women and youths of Eke Ward of Okpokwu LGA of Benue are happy that cassava grains (garri) per basin is now #11000 as against #1500 per basin a year ago.

“All what you see here are Photoshop and not real.”
