Why I am probing Suswam, ex-Benue state governor - Ortom

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state has replied critics of his investigation of the tenure of his predecessor, Gabriel Suswam.

He said the probe was part of his campaign promises and by doing so he is fulfilling the covenant he made with his people.

Ortom announced this in Makurdi while swearing in three new Special Advisers and said that probing Suswan was one of his responsibilities to people of the state.

According to him, people of Benue voted me into office because of my pledge during the electioneering that I will correct all the wrongs in Suswam’s administration.

“Those who stole public funds must return it or risk going to jail; government has overwhelming evidence against those indicted in the report of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry setup by the state.

“Probing the past administration is part of my responsibility to Benue people; the people voted me because of my pledge to correct all the wrongs in the administration of Suswam.
