Former Senate President, David Mark has mocked Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom

Former Senate President, David Mark has mocked Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom for the distribution of wheel barrows to youths in the state.
Mark threw jabs at the governor on Tuesday, May 23 at the Rivers state Government House during the commissioning of the remodelled Brick House, the former Government House in the state.
He said: “Whilst people are here commissioning roads, commissioning projects and all other development projects brought to Rivers state, in my home state (Benue), they are giving out wheel barrows to empower people.
“This is not my first visit to commission projects in Rivers state. I was here less than a year ago to commission one of the roads; I noticed tremendous improvement in the delivery of democracy dividends.
“When the next election comes, you don’t need to bother with all manner of propaganda; these works would campaign for you.”
The internet was agog recently when images of branded wheel barrows with the governor’s name were seen, allegedly set to be distributed to some youths in the state.
The governor has since distanced himself from the branded wheelbarrows, saying that he did not order anybody to write his name on the materials.
