Benue State Government Secretariat

Benue State Government Secretariat, Makurdi, is the central administrative facility of the state government where its employees work. Numerous state ministries, agencies and departments have their offices here. Many commissioners also have their offices at the secretariat. It is one of the most important places in the state.

The address of Benue State Government Secretariat is: Abu Obe Road, Off Old Otukpo Road, Makurdi, Benue State.

The secretariat was built by Governor Aper Aku. The Late Apollos Aper Aku was Governor of Benue State from 1st October 1979 – 1st December 1983.

After Gov Aku built it, the secretariat was not adequately renovated (someone may only stop short of saying it was abandoned in terms of renovation) until Governor Hyacinth Iormem Alia decided to greatly renovate it in 2024.
