The Governor also charged his appointees to work harder by living up to their responsibilities in their various areas, saying his covenant and commitment to the Benue people remains unwavering.

The Governor said despite challenges confronting his administration which are economic and security-related, he has provided basic requirements for the people in all sectors.

He said he would not be weighed down by detractors because he became Governor by the grace of God and he believes that his Creator would not let him down.
