Former #Benue Governor Suswam and Ortom Meet Over Benue’s Financial Status

[Benue News]
The immediate past governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam yesterday met with the incumbent Governor Samuel Ortom over alleged financial issues that have befallen the state in recent times.

This is the first meeting of the duo since the inauguration of Governor Ortom which the former governor absconded and didn’t attend. It was gathered that the meeting is in connection to the judicial commission of inquiry which Ortom has set to probe the past administration.

However, a statement signed by the special adviser to the governor on media and ICT, Tahav Agerzua, made available to LEADERSHIP Weekend yesterday, said they met at the Presidential Lodge of the Benue Peoples’ House to discuss state matters.

It said, “The former governor was accompanied to the meeting which he requested and was held behind closed doors, by Catholic Bishop of Katsina-Ala Diocese, Bishop Peter Adoboh, and chairman Ashitech conglomerate, Dr Terkula Suswam.

The current and former governors discussed state matters for several hours.

It was their first meeting since the inauguration of Governor Ortom which the former Governor didn’t attend, it added.

The meeting, it was further learnt was not unconnected to the numerous financial and security issues faced by the state. Another source said the former governor went to plead with the incumbent over the installation of his elder brother, Terkula as Tor Sankera which, Ortom had reversed immediately he was sworn into office.
