The picture began gaining traction till it got to the Governor’s notice, who in turn requests to meet the talented, young artist and also buy off the work of art from him.

Nigerians have however reacted to the gesture of the governor as many believe it’s all social media stunts in a bid to gather electoral sympathy as the State prepares for the Gubernatorial elections scheduled for October, 2020.
