• Says Akume never inspected projects
The Benue state Governor, Rt, Hon. Gabriel Suswam has refuted the claim that Mr.Nath Apir is his Project Consultant but claimed but he is only a friend he was willing to support.

Mr. Nath Apirb who had recently granted a press interview in a national daily averring amongst other things that he is an insider in Suswam’s administration, alleged that all projects said to have been embarked upon by the governor are a monumental fraud.

Suswam who made this known during an interaction with newsmen in the Makurdi Government House , the Governor said that his administration have competent and qualified Engineers that can act in the capacity maintaining that the man who called himself a consultant is not a qualified Engineer, but only an “experienced worker”.

“…when Nath came back to the country, he went round on his own andwas taken pictures of the projects I embarked on. After doing that, hecalled me and expressed worry why I would do these much and would not wantit publicized. I agreed to the idea that lets use the pictures he took to do publicity and that are all”. He declared.

The Governor also expressed anger over what he termed “unholy” behaviour of his predecessor, and erstwhile godfather Sen. George Akume whom he described as a blatant liar.

According to him, the problem with Sen. Akume is that throughout his eight years in office, he did not visit any site where he awarded a contract and depend solely on fake progress reports from his aides who were not telling him the truth.

He cited an example where what he saw in the file was that eighty percent work was done on the Greater Makurdi Water Works after N700m was mobilized the contractor.
“when we visited the site, what we actually saw was an attempt to excavate land and nothing more… I was also with him when he went to see Igumale Cement. When we arrived Igumale, he was asking of the site of the Company. We finally arrived the place and what we saw there was 200 blocks. So where are the companies and factories he is talking about? ”

in reaction to the governor’s denial of his engagement, Mr. Nath Apir described the Principal’s remarks on him as laughable saying he will not comment further but will do that shortly when he will back up everything he says with documentary evidence.
