Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state has dismissed the thought of slashing the salaries of Benue workers despite paying the highest wage in the northern and third highest in the country after Lagos and Rivers States.

The Governor who lamented that the wage bill of the state contributes in no small measure to the financial challenges the government is grappling with, said it would be unreasonable to adjust salaries given difficult times and the inflationary rate in the country.

He said: “I prioritize the issue of payment of salaries because Benue state is a state that the economy is driven by peasant farmers and actively contributed by the civil service. So when you don’t pay salaries their is a problem.

“We have a large civil service because we do not have industries like other states. So the industry we have is the civil servants, hence you just have to do employments.

“We do not want our youths to be redundant. We have the Benue State University, we have the University of Agriculture and other tertiary institutions and every year we have thousands of our children graduating and sometimes you will want to engage them.

“But many people may not be aware of this, Benue state is paying the highest salary in the north. In Nigeria Benue state is paying the highest after Lagos and Rivers states.
