Ex-Governor Suswam Disappointed That Some Boys Are Been Paid To Blackmail & Insult Him On Social Media
A former governor of Benue state, Dr. Gabriel Torwua Suswam, yesterday lamented federal absence in the state especially the Tiv nation, saying that the state had two ministers, Director-General NAFDAC, Manager NEXIM Bank, EFCC Chairman, Attorney-General of the Federation and Chief Justice of Nigeria as well as Secretary of Standards Organization of Nigeria when he held sway as governor of the state.
Speaking at a thanksgiving service and reception in his honour at Chembe near Anyiin in Logo local government, Dr. Suswam noted that all this federal presence had vanished without compensation from a government that the people gave everything to support.
Lamenting the high-handedness with which the government of the state was treating the people of Zone A, depicted through retrenchment of workers and the inability of the people of the axis to be given key appointments, the former governor urged the people to remain law-abiding and always pray to God for the gift of good leaders to pilot the affairs of the state and the nation at large.
He however expressed happiness for the uncommon honour done him by his community just as he explained that he was lately turning down such invitations because the state government under Governor Samuel Ortom accused him of anti-government activities each time he visited the state and therefore never wanted to share in someone's blame for his feeble grip on the state.
Furthermore, Dr. Suswam lamented the poor attitude of some boys who are being paid to blackmail and insult him on the social and print media for offences he knew nothing about.
Saying that he would have taken a walk out of the country to rest, but deliberately stayed around for those who had cases against him to initiate them, Suswam maintained that the efforts he gave in towards repositioning the state would one day be known and better appreciated. In his preaching, Reverend Pastor F.M Kuku maintained that it was pertinent to give thanks to God for the life of a worthy son (Suswam) who had served the state successfully and had completed his two terms as governor.
He noted further that the live of Dr. Suswam was an endless epitome of God's unending favour and grace, having kept him through his two terms as a house of representative member and as governor. He however urged Suswam to embrace fate and use this opportunity that he is not in power to get closer to God for spiritual refilling and upliftment for further endeavors.
