A general unease seems to be brewing in the relationship between the governor of Benue state Gabriel Suswan and the governor-elect Samuel Ortom over utterances of the governor-elect. Speaking on behalf of the governor, the state commissioner for information Justin Amase said ‘the governor wishes to advise the governor –elect and his associates to wait until May 29 when the APC government will be officially inaugurated before they can take charge of governance in the state.
‘The APC and the good people of Benue state are to note that governor Gabriel Suswan remains the executive governor and would not tolerate reckless pronouncements from any person or persons on matters of government in the state.
Governor Suswan had expressed displeasure at the warning given by governor-elect Ortom and his associates on imposing traditional rulers on the people and recruiting new civil servants when civil servants and pensioners are owed six months salaries.
Governor Suswan also said they were disappointed at utterances from the Ortom camp at a time the government was extending olive branch to the governor-elect in the interest of peace in the state. He said that governor-elect have chosen a confrontational approach to the government.
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
