Commissioner Rebukes Benue Head of Service for not Accounting for Govt. Houses

Posted: May 26, 2012 in Uncategorized

Benue state Commissioner for Housing and Urban Development, Hon. Simon
Kwaghbulah has taken a swipe at the Benue Head of Service of the
state, Mr. Mike Iordye for not only encroaching into his roles but
also has sold and rented out government houses without any record of
accountability.
The Commissioner who made this disclosure yesterday at the ongoing
accountability press briefing jointly organised by the Ministry for
Information and Orientation and the State Council of the Nigeria Union
of Journalists (NUJ) also expressed worry that even after he made a
presentation and got the approval of the state Executive Council to
take over all government houses within and outside the state, the Head
of Service blatantly refused and has since arrogated to himself the
duty of superintending and selling out some houses with such impunity.
He also promised hell for those that built on water channels and
sewages saying in the nearest future, the ministry will embark on
total demolition of such structures vowing that there would be no
sacred cows when the exercise commenced.
Hon. Kwaghbulah however said that since he took over in the new
ministry, he received a wonderful encouragement and resources from the
his principal, the governor of the state, the gesture he said he has
effectively utilised pointing out that almost all Benue Liaison
offices outside the state have been renovated while many are still
undergoing renovations at various levels of completion.
He further expressed hope that after a tax force that has been put in
place by his ministry complete its job and submit report; all
controversies arising from the issues of housing in the state will be
adequately taken care of.
Also commenting on the defunct state-owned mortgage institution,
Benhouse Building Society, in a visibly emotion laden voice the
commissioner noted that since inception of the institution, it has
never been given a professional head as according to him all who
headed the institution were given appointments based on personal
relationships and not professiona
