We will abol­ish joint ac­count in Benue - Jime

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Joshua Odeyemi

The APC gu­ber­na­to­rial can­di­date in Benue State, Barr. Em­manuel Jime, has promised to abol­ish the joint ac­count regime of the cur­rent ad­min­is­tra­tion in the state.

Jime made the prom­ise while meet­ing with Benue cit­i­zens re­sid­ing in the Fed­eral Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory (FCT), Abuja.

“We want the lo­cal gov­ern­ment ar­eas to have their al­lo­ca­tions to en­sure grass­roots de­vel­op­ment,” he said. He said Benue was cur­rently at a cross­road since the in­cum­bent gover­nor had “com­pletely lost di­rec­tion”, adding that it will take some­one like him to bring it back on track.

While so­lic­it­ing the sup­port of the Benue in­di­genes in Abuja in ac­tu­al­iz­ing his dream of be­com­ing the state gover­nor, he pledged to pri­or­i­tize se­cu­rity, econ­omy, health­care de­liv­ery, ed­u­ca­tion, in­fras­truc­tural de­vel­op­ment and so­cial wel­fare.

On his part, the Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of his cam­paign or­gan­i­sa­tion, Se­na­tor Jack Gyado, as­sured that “he (Jime) will not spend your money when he gets to the gov­ern­ment house be­cause he is very mod­est.”
