Benue State Governor, Rev Father Hyacinth Alia, has sacked all political appointees under the administration of the immediate past governor, Samuel Ortom.

The governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Tersoo Kula, who disclosed this to journalists in Makurdi on Thursday, said the appointees have been directed to hand over to the most senior civil servants in their various offices.

According to Kula, the decision comes after the last three days of unscheduled visitations by Governor Alia to MDAs, where he uncovered a lot of decay and inefficiency in the management of public utilities.

DAILY POST recalls that the governor expressed dissatisfaction on Tuesday with some of the appointees after visiting several government facilities unannounced.
