Benue State APC Governorship Candidate Says He Will Reduce Work Force If Elected


The All Progressives Congress governorship candidate in Benue State, Emmanuel Jime has revealed he has plans to reduce the workforce in the state if voted.

The APC candidate stated that the current number of workers in the state is too large and more than the capacity of the state.

Jime stated this when he featured on Ashi Waves FM Katsina-Ala in the State.

He claimed that the way the state government can cope with regular payment of workers salaries is to reduce the workforce.

Jimi noted that if voted he will address the salary challenge of the state and will relieve the appointment of workers whom he described as “redundant and not adding any value but only receiving salaries.”

He wondered why only one ministry in the state would have up to 100 staff in a digital age when computer carries out more work done previously by human beings.

He stated that if voted he won’t encourage laziness among civil servants as those without any assignment would be asked to leave the service.

“The number of workers in the state is much beyond the expectations. No governor will find it easy paying such a large number of workers and at the same time execute capital projects.”

He explained that the delay in presentation of plots of land he acquired in Abuja for traditional rulers in Benue State was caused by unforeseen logistic issues which he assured were almost sorted out.

Jime promised to make the plots available to the traditional rulers before May this year and used the opportunity to call on the people of the state to vote for him.
