Governor Hyacinth Alia of Benue State has been commended for his accomplishments in his first 100 days in office. One of the notable achievements is the cleansing of the state workforce from payroll manipulation. In addition, the governor has successfully paid four months' salary and is committed to clearing all arrears. This news article highlights the significant progress made by Governor Alia and his administration.

MAKURDI - Prof Joseph Alakali, Secretary to the Benue State Government (SSG), has stated that one of the state government's accomplish­ments in the last 100 days was to cleanse the state workforce of pay­roll manipulation, characterizing Governor Hyacinth Alia's accomplish­ments as enormous.

The SSG stated this in a statement signed by his Principal Spe­cial Assistant, Cabinet Affairs/Me­dia, Philip Salemkaan, and made accessible to journalists in Makur­di on Friday. He also stated that Rev. Fr Hyacinth Alia has successfully paid four months' salary and is on track to discharge all arrears.

Prof Alakali, who stated while hosting Zone A Progressive Fron­tiers on a solidarity visit to the Cab­inet office in Makurdi, said Gover­nor Alia's first 100 days were a hint of the mammoth and aggressive development that would hit the state in the coming years.

As a result, he charged Zone A party leaders, whom he termed "progressive thinkers," with com­ing up with ideas that would add value to the Alia administration, while also urging the group to support the government in its en­deavours.

While acknowledging the rot in the system and the current economic issues, the SSG claimed that some of Governor Alia's accomplish­ments during his first 100 days in office exceeded the people's expectations.

Prof Alakali stated, "Within three months, the Governor has rid the state workforce of payroll manipulation, successfully paid four months salary, and is poised to clear all arrears."

"Some of the achievements of the Alia administration so far include: the renovation of Benue State House of Assembly complex, ongoing renovation of the aban­doned State Civil Service Secre­tariat, ongoing construction of 16 roads within Makurdi metropolis and the whole gamut of palliative measures of the Governor aimed at alleviating the hardship of the people occasioned by subsidy re­moval," he stated.

Also speaking at the occasion, Chairman of the group, Titus Adaaku said they were in the of­fice to pay solidarity to the SSG over his appointment and also seek his approval to become their life patron.

Teryima Iorlamen, convener and secretary of the group, and Chief Dese Dzenda, in separate contributions, commended Gov­ernor Alia for appointing Prof. Alakali to the position of SSG and expressed confidence in the SSG's ability to successfully steer the ship of the office and drive Governor Alia's policies.
