Varsity Dons, Legislator, Sue Benue Governor Over Last Minute Actions




Professor Aloysius Ihuah of the Benue State University and a member of the Benue State House of Assembly, Mr. Benjamin Adanyi, have dragged the state government to court over last minute employments, appointments and the sale of government property.

Prof. Tony Ijohor, Prof. Ihuah and the Minority Leader of the State Assembly, Mr. Adanyi, in separate writ of summons are praying the Makurdi High Court to restrain the state government from employing 4,500 workers and making further last minute appointments.

Professor Ihuah averred that as a public servant duly employed by the state government, he has not been paid his salary for the past three months while other workers have not been paid for over five months, yet the government is seeking to employ over 4, 500 staff to further compound the situation.

He stated that the first defendant, Governor Gabriel Suswam, has concluded arrangements to lease some state owned companies, including the Benue Fertilizer Blending and Chemical Company Limited, adding that the actions would put the state into more difficult financial crisis.
