Ortom says No plan to get N10bn loan.

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has urged the people of the state and other Nigerians to disregard the report that the state government is seeking approval from the state assembly to enable it to access a N10bn loan.

The social media had been  rife with the purported move by Ortom to seek approval of the state House of Assembly to obtain a N10bn loan despite the governments inability to offset the workers’ salary arrears in the state.

In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, the governor alleged that the report was being circulated by the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress.

Ortom, who denied the report, said the state government had not made such a move and it did not intend to take a N10bn loan.
