I didn’t probe Akume, I wonder why Ortom is after me – Suswam

Immediate past governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam has affirmed that he is not afraid of facing the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFFC, over corruption allegations leveled against him.
The ex-governor attributed the Peoples Democratic Party’s loss in the last general election to the party’s negligence.

He stated this while playing host to 17 PDP leaders from Benue in Abuja.
Suswam noted that since he did not probe his predecessor, he was not expecting that his successor would probe him.

“On the probe going on in Benue State, it is not that one is afraid, but once a precedent is set, it is a double-edge sword. You don’t know whose turn it is tomorrow, you don’t know tomorrow.

“When I became the governor of Benue State, I met some issues on ground but I resolved it amicably without going after anyone. It baffles me that all this is happening. When there are issues, let us talk about it amicably instead of grandstanding. This remains my approach to life but to go and do grandstanding. I encourage us in Benue to toe the path of peace.

“What we want is a better Benue. I moved Benue State forward, I hope the next administration will build on the developmental strides we achieved. We want peace in our state, we don’t want violence.
“After a long period of time, if you are used to winning all the time, you begin to take things for granted. We lost election because we took a lot of things for granted.

“There were many issues we did not attend to on time. We have experienced something which has resulted in ‘had we known.’ That is why we are now at the receiving end.
“But God creates this kind of situation so that we can learn. When God called Moses, it came with fire. What happened to us is God talking to us.

“The PDP is still intact in Benue, the elders are intact and that is why they have come to meet with me, the opposition leader. And it comes with a lot of pain,” he narrated.
