Suswam to clarify his political future in 2014

29 July 2013, 07:54

Konshisha – Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue on Sunday said he would clarify his future political ambition in 2014.

The governor said this at Konshisha-Mbakpuul in Konshisa Local Government Area during a fundraising event for two schools in the community.

At the occasion, prominent members of the community said they had endorsed the governor as the Senatorial candidate for the Benue North East District.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that although Suswam, a two-term governor, has not yet declared his intention to vie for the seat, groups and associations had continued to hold consultations on his behalf.

Suswam commended the leaders for organising the event and directed the State Commissioner for Education to liaise with the community for the purpose of intervention.

He, however, made a personal donation of N3 million for the development of the two schools and urged other donors to donate generously.

Suswan also charged leaders to show humility by identifying with their people through supporting the development of rural communities.
