Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has said the civil servants in the state are idle at work.
He made this remark while justifying his declaration of Fridays as work free in the state to enable civil servants work on their farms.
The Governor who was speaking to journalists in Abuja, Wednesday, said even if he didn’t declare Fridays as public holidays, the workers go to work and do nothing.
“They are ignorant people. The programme is well received. Benue State has comparative advantage in agriculture.
“Even when I did not declare Friday, it is as good as they go there and still do nothing,” he said.
