The Governor of Benue State has been berated for donating branded wheelbarrows to youths of the state as part of his empowerment.
The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has taken the job of empowering the people of the state to a funny and hilarious level when he handed over branded wheelbarrows to the youths.
According to a media of the Governor, the gesture is to make the youths self-reliant and self-employed instead of going around looking for non-existent white collar jobs.
However, a Facebook user, Moses Ochonu who posted photographs of the wheelbarrows with the encryption 'Gov. Ortom For You', took a swipe at the manner of empowerment by calling it an embarrassment.
This is what Ochonu wrote:
"Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has forced me out of my self-imposed Facebook hiatus. Don't laugh; this is youth empowerment and job creation, Ortom style.
Who dey do us dis thing? Who did we offend?"
To justify the wheelbarrow empowerment scheme, a government official noted that the move by the Governor came because Benue is a state known for farming and the governor decided to provide youths with wheelbarrows to help in carrying their produce from their farmlands.
