Ortom who was speaking at the Benue Peoples House yesterday said the state government would use the N12.7 billion debt refunds for that purpose.
He added that even though the funds is not enough to pay two months wages of workers in the state, the government will source for funds to fulfil their promise.
His words, “We will ensure that workers of the state get two months salaries before Christmas. Though the Paris and London Clubs refund is not enough for the payment of two months, we will make up for what is left.
