Samuel Ortom accused : “Even at that, the Ortom administration is prompt in payment of workers salaries while also working tirelessly to find ways to clear the salary arrears and end the pension crises which was occasioned at the height of the inflation era under the APC led administration. This is why the administration has domesticated the Pension Law in the state. As of today, the Benue State Government has saved more than N1.5 billion into the PENCOM Account. This means that workers retiring a few years from now will not need to worry about their pension or gratuities. In any case, is it not laughable for someone who claimed to be a lawyer and is aspiring to be a federal lawmaker to be unable to distinguish areas of how to direct his campaigns? How can he be relying solely on unsubstantiated claims of delay in payment of workers’ wages to liken Benue to Afghanistan? ” External link

Samuel Ortom accused : “Even at that, the Ortom administration is prompt in payment of workers salaries while also working tirelessly to find ways to clear the salary arrears and end the pension crises which was occasioned at the height of the inflation era under the APC led administration. This is why the administration has domesticated the Pension Law in the state. As of today, the Benue State Government has saved more than N1.5 billion into the PENCOM Account. This means that workers retiring a few years from now will not need to worry about their pension or gratuities. In any case, is it not laughable for someone who claimed to be a lawyer and is aspiring to be a federal lawmaker to be unable to distinguish areas of how to direct his campaigns? How can he be relying solely on unsubstantiated claims of delay in payment of workers’ wages to liken Benue to Afghanistan? ” External link
