Samuel Ortom-Gabriel Suswam

The Benue State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has berated Governor Samuel Ortom for “erasing” the face and identity of his predecessor, Gabriel Suswam, from projects he (Suswam) executed during his tenure.

The Benue PDP, in a statement by its spokesman, Bemgba Iortyom, at the weekend, stated that the memorial plaque installed at the State Teaching Hospital (BSUTH) clearly bearing the in scripted details of the former governor and ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, at the initial commissioning, had been removed and destroyed.

According to the party, another plaque was installed bearing only the inscription of the ex-president who commissioned the facility in March 2012.

The Benue PDP alleged that the details of dual carriage grade A asphalt road, initiated by Senator George Akume, during his time as governor,  but built to completion by Suswam, and thereafter named ‘George Akume Road’ in a show of goodwill, had been tampered with.

“This development is not only indecent and a show of unbridled lust for vengeance by Ortom against his predecessor, Gabriel Suswam, but it is also a reflection of a dangerous mindset at the topmost level of leadership in the state”, it said.

There was no official reaction to the claims by the PDP from the Governor as at the time of publishing this report.
