Makurdi, Sept. 18, 2018 Benue House of Assembly has approved the sum of N3.5 billion loan request by Gov. Samuel Ortom.
The house approved the loan on Tuesday at plenary after reading a letter written to them by the governor.
In the letter, Ortom had asked the assembly to approve the loan to be taken from the United Bank for Africa (UBA) for electrification and road construction across the state.
Ahubi, therefore, urged his colleagues to agree to the speedy approval of the contracts funds.
He, however, appealed to the state government to judiciously use the money and not misappropriate it.
