I Didn’t Mismanage Benue Funds – Ex-Governor Suswam

Ex-Governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam, on Monday dismissed claims that he misappropriated funds accrued to the state during his tenure as governor between 2007 and 2015.

Suswam, who spoke during a thanksgiving service organized in his honour by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Benue North West Senatorial District (Zone B), at St Vincent Catholic Church Iorwar, Aliade, Benue State, said he did what was right for the people during his administration.

He said, “I did what a good and caring governor should do for his people while I was governor in Benue State  and that is why I haven’t been found wanting by anyone up till now except for those sponsoring media attacks against my person.

“As far as I am concerned, I didn’t mismanage a dime out of all the funds realized by the state under my watch as governor.”

Suswam is being accused of looting state funds while in office, the latest being $24 million accrued to the state as debt refunds from the Paris and London clubs.
