Benue state governor, Rev Fr. Hycinth Alia Thursday, swore in the newly appointed Secretary to Benue State Government, Head of Civil Service of Benue State and Chief of Staff to the governor, describing them as the engine room of his administration.

The governor had on Wednesday through the Chief Press Secretary, Tersoo Kula, announced the appointment of the three key officials, which he said were critical to his government.

Governor Alia, who performed the ceremony at the Government House, Makurdi on Thursday, cautioned them against public and private conduct that would cast aspersion on his administration.

Governor Alia expressed his resolve to work together as one people with one destiny and set his eyes on Benue people whether they live in Makurdi city or in rural communities of the state.

He commended all stakeholders that came out in their numbers to grace the inauguration ceremony.

“You must be exemplary in both public and private lives because members of the public will judge my administration based on your conduct.

“Let me call on Benue people from all the political divides to join hands to lift up the interest of the state. Politics is now over and this is time to settle down for a serious business work,” he said.

Responding on behalf of others, the Chief of Staff, Mr. Paul Biam, promised to abide by the charge the governor has given to them in the course of duty.
