Ortom commisions project in Benue with a 9-day deadline

Benue State Governor, with only nine days left in his administration, commissioned Fountain Estate, Nyorgyungu, which was built by Benue Investment and Property Company Limited, BIPC, in Makurdi, the state capital, on Saturday.

The Benue State Government owns BIPC, a limited liability company.

Ortom expressed his delight at BIPC's commitment to addressing the housing deficit through estate development while commissioning the project.

In his words, “Estate development is important because the housing deficit is so high in Nigeria and in Benue State.

“Whatever you pay today, give one year, this building will appreciate and if you want to sell, you can make more money.

“I know that because of the housing deficit we have, more people will always need housing. I commend BIPC on this giant stride of adding value and all your proposed initiatives not just in Benue but in Abuja.

“I have a few days to leave office but the government is a continuum. Moreover, BIPC has come to stay and I believe that the incoming government will also support you to ensure that you do more,” Ortom stated.

The Governor further commended the current Board and Management of BIPC for its proactive approach to development.

According to him, “If other past Boards and Management had done even one quarter of what you are doing, we would have been very far by now. We wouldn’t be commissioning one estate but many in this town,” he noted.

He attributed the success of BIPC to the policy of non-interference of his administration, emphasising that “My Government has zero tolerance for interference in the management of the company.

“We don’t interfere, because we have competent people and we believe that they can add value as we heard and seen, whether in the shares of the company, whether in infrastructural development,” Governor Ortom added.
