Senate Minority Leader in the Seventh National Assembly, Senator George Akume of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said he regretted ensuring that Gabriel Suswam became Benue State governor.

Akume, who served as the governor between 1999 and 2007 on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), was succeeded by Suswam (PDP), who till 2007 represented Ukum, Katsina-Ala and Logo Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives.

He made this statement last weekend at the distribution of tricycles to Benue Northwest people. Senator Akume said he coerced and insisted that Suswam be made governor, as it was against the wishes of the people.

He said his insistence that Suswam be made governor was to bring development to the poverty-stricken state, “but I regret because I had no premonition that my successor would embezzle the state’s fund.”
