    Farming Day: Benue Govt Declares Fridays As Public Holiday

    The Benue State Executive Council has approved that Friday every week would be made a work free day to enable workers in the state to work on their farms.

    Governor Samuel Ortom, who chaired the 16th session of the meeting at which the decision was taken, explained that the objective was to enable as many workers as possible to produce food to feed their families in the current economic downturn which has made the regular payment of salaries a major challenge.

    He announced that the work free day would commence from Friday, 10th June, and would last till the end of July, 2016.

    A statement by the state commissioner of Information, Odeh Ageh, on Thursday, said Mr. Ortom also announced that he would take a two-week vacation which was part of his annual leave from Monday, June 13th to work on his farm while the Deputy Governor, Benson Abounu, would act on his behalf during the period.
