Why I empowered youths in Benue with Wheelbarrows-Ortom



Samuel Ortom, the Governor of Benue State, 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 aide 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.
 In response to this, a Facebook user, Moses Ochonu who posted photographs of the wheelbarrows with the inscription '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.
Mr. Paul Kola explains how he got 50% of his revenue after investing it in this profitable platform
