The outgoing Governor of Benue state has on Sunday beseeched the civil servants in the state, apologizing for failing to meet up to their expectations.
This was made known at the inter-denominational valedictory thanksgiving service in his honour at the Chapel of Grace, Government House, Makurdi.
He said “Please forgive me for my inability to meet up with your expectations as the governor of Benue State.
“But always remember that I had good intentions for civil servants in the state as shown in the 100 per cent salary increment I approved when I took over in 2007.
“It is not my making to owe staff salaries but due to the economic challenges in the country, I have no option but to leave behind a lot of challenges for the new government.
“However, when the new governor takes over, you will clearly understand that the financial challenges does not end with me,” he said.
