Disclosing this while taking journalists on a tour of the proposed state-owned brewery, water and bakery factories in Makurdi on Tuesday, May 8, 2024, the Managing Director of Benue Investment and Property Company (BIPC), Raymond Asemakaha, said, when completed, the factories would help in stopping Capital flight to other states.

Asemakaha said the initiative to establish the brewery came up as a result of recent findings, which showed an unprecedented amount of money leaving the state monthly because of mind boggling beer consumption.
