I WILL REMAIN GOVERNOR IN THE NEXT FOUR YEARS- SUSWAM
Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue State has declared that he is going to remain in the Benue Government House for the next four years. This comes at the heels of the judgement of the Supreme Court in favour of his major opponent in the April 12 polls.
The governor who spoke to newsmen in reaction to the said judgement which has directed the constitution of a tribunal to retry the electoral petition by the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), and her candidate, Prof. Steve Ugbah, said he was going to obey the court’s decision without complain because he is confident that he won his election and so is not worried about the outcome of the tribunal to be reconstituted.
“ as a lawyer, I believe in the sanctity of the grand norm of the court and will not do anything to impinge on that. I will also not accept a situation where ACN supporters will go around behaving in a manner that will breach the security of the state.” The governor warned.
In his briefing the governor also commented on the recent attack on his Special Adviser on Media, Dr. Cletus Akwaya. The governor who also blamed the attack on the ACN, said the plan to carry out the attack had been nurtured and discussed in meeting held at the residence of the former chairman of Gboko Local Government, where according to him it was the decision of those at the said meeting to distabilise his government through violent means and target violence at members of his party.
The Governor also stated that this attack is a replication of the threats issued by certain members of the ACN who according to him had earlier on written letters threatening to take over his government or distabilise it through violent means.
In his accusation of the ACN, Suswam warned that such an attack should not repeat as he was not going to allow the perpetrators carry out their schemes scot free.
“ I believe politics is not criminality , the ACN introduced criminality in Benue Politics, I will not allow it. We want to warn that such an attack should not repeat, ACN before and after the elections have continued to perpetrate violence in the state, I want to let it known to the people of the state that all acts of violence in the state are by the ACN”. He noted.
In his reaction, the Director General, Prof. Ugbah Campaign Organization, Prof. David Iornem said they grateful God who has given them the mind and strength to, seek justice to the level of the Apex Court inspite of all provocations, persecution and violence unleashed on them and their supporters by Suswam and his agents.
He said that though the court ordered that the entire process be start afresh, they are not bothered, maintaining that it is rather a clear indication that all that the other Tribunal did in Makurdi was gross injustice to the people of Benue state. Iornem, declared that they will remain steadfast and on the side of the people saying nobody, not even Governor Gabriel Suswam can frighten them to abandon the legal process they have chosen.

“we believe only in the powers of God and the strength of justice, that is why we have pursued this stolen mandate this long in court and not in the war zone… no matter how long it takes, we know that justice must come our way because we have a sound case”. Iornem assured.
