The defeated candidate of the Benue APC in the last governorship election, Mr. Emmanuel Jime, has reportedly released the sum of N200,000 to members of the Benue APC social media group for them to step up their campaigns of calumny against the administration of Governor Samuel Ortom.

A member of the group who was one of those that were secretly dismembered and removed from the group’s social media platform early this week said another N200,000 was also released to members of the Jime/Ode media group by the former NEPZA boss so they can team up to discredit the governor’s numerous achievements in his one hundred days in office.

According to the source who prefers not to be mentioned for security reasons, a meeting of all the members of both social media groups has been called so that the fresh task before them can be read out to them.

Nigerian Concord learnt that the said meeting where plans and strategies to step up the APC/Jime’s campaigns of calumny against Governor Ortom will hold this Saturday by 12PM at a venue that was not disclosed for personal reasons.

The funds which were released by Emmanuel Jime for the project which was tagged: “Pull Ortom Down” will be shared to members of both groups at the said meeting.

At the meeting according to our source, leaders of both social media groups have been asked to mandate their respective members to bombard the cyberspace with negative reports about the governor and his administration.

It was gathered that they are to take away the attention of Benue people from all the commendable achievements of Governor Ortom which are to be publicized by the governor’s media handlers during the celebration of his one hundred days in office.

“They are aware that Ortom has performed creditably well in his one hundred days as governor so our leaders in the media teams were contacted to arrange how we can be writing to discredit the governor’s achievements.

” I was part of the plan from the start before me and seven other members were removed from our social media platforms. They removed us for their own selfish interest so we will no longer have access to their information” the source said.

According to our source, those that will attend the meeting where plans to destroy the achievements of Governor Ortom will be made are Berger Alfred, Steven Korayom, Aben Isaac, Ishegh Raymond, Murphy Jude, Tour Nasha and Patient Hon.
