Addressing State House correspondents yesterday after meeting with the acting president, Yemi Osinbajo, the Governor averred that those criticizing the new policy are “ignorant”, stressing that, “The programme is well received.”
He went on to explain, “Benue State has comparative advantage in agriculture. Now, we are finding it difficult to pay salaries. We are down by four months at the state level and five months at the local government level.
“In any case, because there are no salaries, you know the morale of workers is even low. Apart from that, the money to prosecute good projects is not there.
“Even when you did not declare Friday, it is as good as they go there and still do nothing,” the Governor argued.
