Stop criticizing me, I did my best for Benue people - Suswam blasts from UK

Written By Idoma Television on Sunday, June 28, 2015 | 12:14:00 AM

Former governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam has replied his critics, saying that he did his best for the people of the state.
Suswam fled the shores of Nigeria shortly after handing over to his successor, Samuel Ortom exactly one month ago.
The ex-governor has been at the receiving end of harsh criticisms after refusing to pay civil servants in the state.

Suswam also reportedly left a debt of N90bn for his successor.
Speaking from his UK base via his official Facebook page, the former governor said he would leave anyone nailing him to the cross in the hands of God.

He posted thus: “I did my best for Benue, I can only aspire to be better always and that’s what leadership entails. When I assumed office as Governor of Benue State in 2007, there were obvious lapses, there were debts, unpaid salaries, contractual obligations, dilapidated infrastructure, a weak and an under enumerated civil service, I didn’t make excuses.

“I took it head on and in a short while there were visible changes in and around every urban centre, the new Ministry of rural development and cooperatives we created made impact in the rural areas too by providing electricity to over 100 communities in the first year alone.

“The economic crunch unfortunately caused the hardship people faced towards the end of our administration, I wasn’t happy about it but I couldn’t change it either. The task of leadership is enormous and I did my best for Benue.

“The new government must move from here to the next level and they can only do that with a sustained commitment to satisfy the wishes of the Benue people not chasing frivolities or making excuses to failures or achievements of the past”.
