All that I request from you is continued support of our economic policies as we march onto greatness. Benue is rising and will surely get to its desired development destination.”

    Benue workers are not interested in promises. They want actions . electioneering campaigns are yet to start.
    What civil servants want is their salaries . They have gotten enough of these promises. Arrant nonsense !
