Benue State

After about seven months of waiting, civil servants on the payroll of the Benue state government have started receiving their monthly salaries.

The civil servents had gone without salaries since December 2022 following periods of court garnishee orders on the bank accounts of the government and other sundry issues.

But on assumption of office, Governor Hyacinth Alia during his June 12, 2023 Democracy Day broadcast assured the civil servants that they would start receiving their salaries from June 25.
