'This is an embarrassment!' - Facebook user shares photo of Benue state youth empowerment initiative

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state has embarked on a youth empowerment initiative. Yet, his good intentions seem to have caused more trouble for him than expected.

A Facebook user shared a picture of one of the ways Governor Ortom is empowering youths in the state, and it is a photo of wheelbarrows with the governor's name printed on them.

Apparently, because Benue is a state known for farming, the governor decided to provide youths with wheelbarrows to help in carrying their produce.

Below is the post which has since gone viral and elicited a lot of comments from Nigerians, mostly condemning the governor.

Below are some reactions to the photo from concerned Nigerians:
