Governor of Benue State, Dr. Gabriel Suswam
By Onyebuchi Ezigbo in Abuja
The Governor of Benue State, Dr. Gabriel Suswam, has deplored series disparaging criticisms that have trailed his recent security alarm he raised during a church service in Makurdi.
Suswam, who said he was actually misquoted by the media, expressed dismay that despite making a rebuttal other sections of the media and commentators, apparently bent on discrediting the Governor, have continued to latch on to the false reports.
In a statement issued by the Governor's Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Dr. Cletus Akwaya, Suswan said his mention of the Boko Haram sect’s threat to his life was used as another example of the risks which Nigerian leaders face.
