Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has again obtained a N10 billion loan facility from the Federal Government for critical infrastructure.
Ortom made this disclosure at a thanksgiving service at St John Baptist Quasi Parish, Gbise, in Katsina-Ala local government area of the state.
According to him, the money which entered the state government’s accounts at the weekend would be judiciously used to complete critical projects in the state.
With this, the current government, which is just 9 months in power, has put the total amount of debts at N53.62 billion.
He had earlier obtained N10 billion for salaries, medical school accreditation and take-off of government, 28.12 billion bailout funds for payment of salary arrears, N5.5 billion for counterpart funding and now N10 billion for critical infrastructure.
