The Benue State governor-elect, Dr Samuel Ortom has Advised the Chairman of the Benue Traditional Council, the Tor Tiv, DR Alfred


HRH. Alfred Akawe Torkula

Akawe Torkula, to emulate the Ochi Idoma concerning the creation of new chiefdoms in the state.

Chief Ortom who was represented by his deputy Dr. Benson Abounu, made this appeal during a media briefing in makurdi, advised the Tor Tiv who is alleged to have approved the creation of the chiefdoms, to rethink his involvement in the matter.

According to him, the issue of traditional chiefdoms was not one to be rushed considering that there are more important issues before the government.

“Considering the importance of the traditional institution in our state, it is unacceptable to rush this law. Our state has been literally grounded and the most important objective at the moment should be how to offset salaries and allowances owed to workers and stabilize for a smooth take off”. He said.

The incoming Governor,  also reiterated his decision to revert all illegal appointments and arbitrary promotions which are allegedly ongoing adding that all beneficiaries and civil servants involved should be ready to face the consequences.

“Finally, we wish to warn that any appointment of 1st Class Chiefs in the state and fresh recruitment into the state public service by the out-going administration will not be accepted to the incoming administration. Beneficiaries are also advised and warned”. Ortom warned.
