Governor Suswam who disclosed this in a chat with newsmen in Makurdi the Benue state capital said there has never been any dispute between him and the senate president for whatever reason. Image
According to him there is no way he will have any problem with the senate President over the issue of 2015 presidency noting that he is not interested in being the president of Nigeria.
“I am still left with three years in office as the governor of Benue state, so why should I go and start fighting for the position, when there is someone already on that seat? It’s a Benue thing that people want leaders to be in conflict and I believe the rumour is purposely targeted to create conflict between me and the senate president to bring us down. I am not interested the Presidency I am the governor of Benue state”. Suswam said.
Commenting on the Security challenge Nigeria is facing, Suswam said If there is something that worries him most it is the security problem the country is experiencing wherepeople are killed without anybody doing anything. “Here a situation where some gangsters will group themselves to fight and as leaders people are keeping quite because they are afraid. Just condemning the terrorists act is not enough Seriously we need our leaders to come out so that we will put hands together to tackle this menace. Commercial activities in the north are dying down, people are afraid of attack and in long run hunger will come because our leaders are afraid to come out publicly to put an end to the wanton destruction of lives and property by Boko Haram”. He lamented.
He said for long time leaders in the country most especially from the north have been paying lipse service as regards the security challenge adding that lipse service is not the solution but action that will help put an end to attacks and prevent the North from destroying themselves.
