* Governor’s Promise Fulfilled, Hope Restored in Benue State

* The Era of Long Wait for Salaries Has Ended

* Fr. Alia Nicknamed “Governor Talk & Do”

Benue State, Nigeria – In an outpouring of joy and relief, workers in Benue State are celebrating as they receive salary alerts after enduring 11 long months of financial uncertainty under the former governor, Mr. Samuel Ortom, who owed workers for 5 months in 2017, December 2022, and from January to May 2023 in many MDAs.

The former governor, Mr. Ortom, had left the state’s workforce without pay, but the newly elected Governor, Rev. Fr. Dr. Hyacinth Iormem Alia, has swiftly delivered on his promise to prioritize the welfare of civil servants in the state.

Recall that during Governor Alia’s Democracy Day Broadcast on June 12, 2023, he was quoted as saying, “…as from 25th of this month, Civil Servants should start expecting alerts for their payments.”

Amidst the jubilant atmosphere, the fulfillment of Governor Alia’s Democracy Day pledge to start paying from June 25th has surpassed the expectations of many skeptical workers and opposition parties. While some doubted the possibility of receiving salaries on a Sunday, hope was rekindled when the long-awaited alerts began pouring into their bank accounts.

The jubilation that has swept through the state is electrifying, as many happy workers have nicknamed Fr. Alia as Governor Talk & Do. Workers who had faced severe financial hardships and endured countless challenges under the last administration can now breathe a sigh of relief. Families, burdened with mounting debts and unmet needs, are finally given a glimmer of hope for a brighter future.

Governor Alia’s commitment to restoring the dignity and well-being of workers has garnered immense praise and admiration from all corners of Benue and beyond. This signifies a fresh chapter in the state’s history, one filled with promise, unity, and prosperity.

Speaking about the development, Governor Alia expressed his deep gratitude to the resilient and patient workforce of Benue State. “You have shown immense strength and dedication despite the challenging circumstances,” he declared. “The era of long wait for salaries has ended in our dear state, and I assure you that your welfare will remain a top priority for this administration.”

Governor Alia emphasized that the fulfillment of salary payments is not merely a one-time gesture but a commitment to sustainable change. His administration is determined to restore trust between the government and the people, fostering an environment of transparency, accountability, and equitable distribution of resources.

The news has not only resonated with the workers but has also uplifted the spirits of the wider population. Communities are buzzing with renewed hope and enthusiasm as the positive ripple effects of this landmark development are felt across the state.

The revival of economic activities, increased consumer spending and improved overall well-being is expected to inject new vitality into Benue’s social fabric.

As Benue State moves forward with new-found optimism, Governor Alia’s vision of a prosperous and inclusive society seems more attainable than ever before. The immense joy and relief experienced by the workers since Sunday is a testimony to the power of progressive leadership, determination, and the resilience of the Benue people.

In the face of adversity, Benue State has emerged stronger, united, and poised to embark on a transformative journey towards progress under the able leadership of Rev. Fr. Dr. Hyacinth Iormem Alia, the Executive Governor of Benue State.

The payment of salaries is not just a financial transaction; it symbolizes a renewed sense of hope and a shared commitment to building a better future for all Benue residents.

With this significant milestone achieved, the people of Benue can now look forward to a more promising era, where their hard work and dedication is honored and the aspirations of a brighter tomorrow are within reach.
