Senate presidency: Suswam mobilises support for Akume

Governor Suswam declared his backing for Akume at a meeting of Benue State PDP stakeholders, held at the state PDP Secretariat, on New Makurdi Road, Makurdi.

PDP leaders in attendance were drawn from the ward, local government, federal constituency, zonal and state levels and included the state party chairman, Dr. Emmanuel Agbo and his deputies from the three senatorial zones, Alhaji Ibrahim Anoor, Prince Yandev Amaabi and Hon Moses Ajima.

He said he would deploy his goodwill and networks across the country, to canvas for Akume’s candidacy, because according to him, Akume had paid his dues as a respectable minority leader in the Senate and would serve Nigeria and Benue State in particular much better, should he ascend the exalted position.

The public declaration of support for Akume caught many in the country and indeed Benue State by surprise.

Suswam is of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, while Akume is of the All Progressives Congress, APC and both men share an interesting, albeit hitherto tempestuous relationship.
