Benue State Governor-elect, Rev Fr Hyacinth Alia has disclosed what he will prioritise when he assumes office on May 29.
Speaking after receiving his Certificate of Return in Makurdi, the state capital, on Wednesday, Alia said that his priority after his swearing-in would be to revamp the state’s civil service and make it effective and efficient.
Alia also expressed gratitude to the Benue people for giving him the opportunity to serve them.
According to Alia, civil service remains the bedrock of every society, saying he would ensure that the civil service is functional before other things could come up.
He said, “We are not taking the opportunity being given to us by the Benue people for granted.
“First of all, we will immediately get a drawing table to make our civil service work.
“Civil service is the engine of the society and it has to be functional before we move to every other thing. So that is going to be the number one thing on the desk”
