Or­tom dis­so­ci­ates self from ve­hi­cle cam­paign pic­ture

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - NEWS - From Joseph Wantu, Makurdi

BENUE State Gov­er­nor Sa­muel Or­tom has dis­so­ci­ated him­self from a pic­ture on a cam­paign ve­hi­cle with in­scrip­tion com­par­ing him (the gov­er­nor) with the sac­ri­fice of Je­sus Christ for hu­man­ity.

Or­tom, in a state­ment signed by his Chief Press Sec­re­tary, Terver Akase and a copy made avail­able to The Guardian, said as a Chris­tian, he re­gards the in­scrip­tion as heresy as he would never at any time equate him­self with Je­sus Christ.

“I have never in­structed any­one to make such an in­scrip­tion and wishes to dis­so­ci­ate my­self from it,” he said.
