I’m leaving behind N9.2bn debt – Suswam

The outgoing Governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam, has said that he is leaving behind a dept profile of N9.2bn for the incoming administration of Samuel Ortom.

Suswam stated this at the Banquet Hall of the Government House Makurdi shortly after presenting his handover notes to Ortom.

He said, “I am leaving behind a total debt profile of N9.2bn for the incoming administration.”

The outgoing governor also regretted that he did not take the state to a greater height having spent eight years as a governor.

“Surely, we did not take Benue State to a greater height but that doesn’t mean that we didn’t do our part as a government,” Suswam declared.

He maintained that he had remained a fulfilled man having provided the needed platform for the incoming administration to thrive.

He appealed to the media to extend the same gesture of goodwill to the incoming administration both in the state and at the federal levels.

Suswam revealed that he had instructed his lawyers to withdraw a lawsuit he earlier instituted against Senator Barnabas Gemade at the election tribunal.

The outgoing governor had sought to represent Benue North-East Senatorial District at the red chambers but failed during the general elections.

Suswam pleaded with the people of the state in particular and Nigerians in general to forgive him for some of the decisions he might have taken that were contrary to their wishes.
