Benue civil servants to get entitlements four months after retirement – Alia

Benue State Governor, Rev Fr Hyacinth Alia has promised to settle the entitlements of retired civil servants within four months after disengagement from service.

Alia disclosed this on Wednesday in Makurdi during a meeting with heads of ministries, departments and agencies.

“Going forward, retired civil servants have a maximum of 120 days to get their entitlements. This is our commitment to them,” he stated.

He urged the officials to ensure discipline, hard work and diligence, while emphasising accountability, transparency, confidentiality and teamwork.

“If you come late to work, close when you want or you are absent, how do you want your subordinates to act differently?

“There has to be a drastic change in attitude towards work for optimal results. That is what the Benue people want from us,” the Benue governor stated.

He added, “Accountability has to be built in your heart. The confidentiality we used to have in the service needs to be returned. I am here to serve you and the State.

“You have accepted the job to also serve in various capacities. I call for a uniform style of work to justify the prompt payment of salaries.

“We need to revive, revamp and reform the civil service, and we have to change the narratives. We must recalibrate to avoid embarrassing scenes and situations. This administration will not tolerate laziness and truancy.”
