In what can be termed as lack of creativity by Ogun State social media handlers under Governor Prince Dapo Abiodun is what is presently happening as one Mr Jeremiah Olatinwo a social media enthusiast and digital marketing expert came out to allege the Ogun state government of stealing his intellectual property.
Speaking with Dailynewscover , he said
But on Friday evening, I got a call from a friend who saw and also shared my creative work that the Ogun State government has plagiarised my concept – word for word, color for color without giving due credit.
To my amazement the design was up on all social media platforms of the Ogun State government – Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
I made attempt to reach their social media team but they didn’t respond.
Therefore, I am now using this medium to inform the general public, the press and the global community that the SWAG concept being bandied on Ogun State Government social media platform is my (JEREMIAH OLATINWO) initiative and concept.
I hereby seek for due compensation for my creative work and their plagiarism.
I’m also using this medium to seek the support of good people of Nigeria, especially the people of Ogun state to tell the indefatigable Governor of the State, Prince Dapo Abiodun to tell his social media handlers to drop my initiative or compensate me because I intend to market the concept to some multinationals and as it is now, is not visible again”.
The design is attached herewith alongside the plagiarised version :
