Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has disclosed that his administration would soon demand that revenue generating organizations render accounts to government.
He spoke when a delegation from Tombo community in Logo local government area led by Chief Medical Director of the Benue State University Teaching Hospital, Professor Orkurga Malu, paid him a courtesy call.
Governor Ortom stated that the economic downturn dictated that the states look inwards and beef up their internally generated revenue which required that organizations which generate revenue render accounts and make payments into the common purse.
According to him such organizations include the state teaching hospital adding that his administration would provide support for them to perform maximally.
He said he was aware of the challenges of the community which include insecurity, lack of critical infrastructure, as well as general underdevelopment.
Earlier, Professor Malu had listed incessant attacks resulting into the sacking of the entire community with the suspension of farming activities for two years and lack of motorable roads as the major problems of the community.
He lauded the appointments of prominent indigenes of Logo local government area into the state executive council and the caretaker committee and sought more of such.
