Governor Samuel Ortom’s media handlers have frowned and described as unacceptable the circulation of the picture of a campaign vehicle which bears an inscription that compares the efforts of Governor Samuel Ortom for the people of Benue State and the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for humanity.
The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Tever Akase in a release in Makurdi today said as a Christian, Governor Ortom regarded the inscription as heresy as he would never at any time equate himself with Jesus Christ.
He said the governor has not instructed anyone to make such an inscription and wishes to dissociate himself from it.
Akase also urged the people of the State and other Nigerians to disregard the inscription which might be the imagination of an overzealous supporter or the fabrication of political opportunists.
“Governor Ortom has directed that if indeed such a vehicle exists, the owner should be requested to erase the inscription,” Akase said.
According to Akase, the governor urged his supporters to always employ decorum in engaging with members of the public.
