My Travails Are Politically Motivated, Suswam Says He Is Human & Not A Saint
Published:9 Nov, 2015
The former governor of Benue State, Mr. Gabriel Suswam, has denied the allegation of corruption leveled against him, saying it was politically motivated to demonize his time in office as the governor of the state.
Addressing reporters on Sunday in the state, days after reports that he would be arraigned by an anti-graft agency, Suswam described the office of the governor as stressful, saying that 24 hours in office was enough to send any public officer to jail.
He further asked those calling for his prosecution to know he is also human and not a saint.
Suswam stated this at a thanksgiving service held in his honour at the Holy Ghost Catholic in Makurdi by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) caucus in the Benue State House of Assembly, to mark his eight years in office which ended in May, 2015.
