Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has stated that God would soon provide solution to his inability to pay workers salaries in the state.
He called on the workers not to despair.
Governor Ortom stated this in Makurdi when he received the award of ‘Defender of the Disadvantaged’ at the 2016 Annual Awards organised by the Catholic Star newspaper in collaboration with Catholic Media Professionals, Radio Benue, Harvest FM and NTA Makurdi.
The Governor said he understood the difficulties workers of the state were facing as a result of the delay in payment of salaries, promising that his administration would ensure that all outstanding wages were cleared as soon as funds were available.
“I feel the pains of our workers and I want them to know that the current financial situation is not limited to Benue State. Many other states cannot pay salaries as we speak. But I am confident that God will soon provide a solution to the challenge”, he assured.
Governor Ortom said the society could only become a better place when those whom God had blessed assist the less privileged, assuring that he and his family would continue to do things that could make life worth living for fellow human beings.
