Track & field queen, Blessing Okagbare is not happy over the use of her image and footage by a body said to be working for President Jonathan. The advertorial by GoodHouse Nigeria has been running on various electronic media in Nigeria and also on Youtube and the athlete is infuriated over the use of her image, especially because they didn’t even ask her permission to use the image or footage.
According to Punch, Blessing Okagbare said in a statement sent by her agent that;
�Now, I am here struggling on my own to pay my coach, nutritionist, doctor and others to make sure I am in good shape for the All African Games and the IAAF World Championship in Beijing, China later in the year, and some people back home are using my image and footage for presidential campaign ad without seeking for my approval.
This is fraudulent because I am totally not in support of it. We called the people (GoodHouse Nigeria) and they denied using my image and footage for PDP presidential advertorial. Who did it then? Why are they lying?”
Blessing also told Punch’s correspondent that she was condemning the act not for financial gain or support, but because of two reasons. First, ‘It is about me and what I represent,’ she said and also because those involved were not doing the right thing for sports to grow in Nigeria.
