Benue State will battle to pay salaries due to the election of Samuel Ortom during the governorship elections, according to Daniel Onjeh.
Concise News understands that Daniel Onjeh is a former President of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS).
This online news medium understands that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Ortom of Benue winner of the 2019 governorship election in the state.
However, while reacting to the election, Onjeh stated that he was weeping for Benue people because the state will struggle to pay salaries.
“How long will the children of workers and pensioners in Benue be out of school for lack of financial support from their incapacitated and oppressed parents?” he wondered.
“How long will Benue workers and pensioners endure this hunger and denial as a result of nonpayment of their wages?”
“The painful side is that the same resources the workers and pensioners were denied, were the same Ortom used to buy votes.”
He added: “I’m surprised at how David Mark, who accused Ortom of distribution of wheelbarrows to Benue youths as the only project he has done, could turn around and support the same Ortom to win second term in office.”
“Suswam also accused Ortom of ballooning the wage bill when Ortom was in APC but turned around to support him to win a second term in office.
“Abba Moro also condemned Ortom and said that he failed woefully as such, does not deserve a second term but turned around to support him because he defected to their party.”
“This flip-flap Politicians’ behavior shows that they are only working for their own selfish purpose and not for the common good of the masses as always portrayed,”
Also, he called on INEC to cancel “the places where the use of Card Readers was even disregarded.
“The places are Guma, Logo, Buruku, Ukum and Vandeikya local government areas.”
