Benue governor, Hyacinth Alia has said the construction of roads, underpass, payment of salaries, pensions and gratuities, remodeling of Assembly Complex, State Secretariat and other initiatives he has accomplished since he assumed officer were possible because of the support of President Bola Tinubu.

The Benue state Governor said this on Friday during his thank you tour to Makurdi/Guma Federal Constituency held in Makurdi the state capital.

According to him, the President had given him unimaginable support and urged the people of the state to be patient with him as the President has “very good intentions for the citizenry”.

He also promised to renovate and upgrade the Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (IBB) Square in Makurdi to international standards.

He said the facilities at the over-30-year-old square constructed during the military era were outdated and needed urgent attention.

He said his administration, which had constructed 16 township roads within the state was also constructing an underpass in Makurdi and Gboko.

According to him, more roads in the constituency would soon be awarded.
