2015 Polls: Benue LG Endorses Suswam for Senate
The people of Konshisha local government area in Benue state at the weekend endorsed Governor Gabriel Suswam as their sole candidate for 2015 senatorial election in the area.
The governor while responding said the electorates were free to make consultation in view of the next general election but quickly added that the ban on early campaign was still in force. He said the current internal squabbles within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would not disintegrate the family as the party will wax stronger from such crisis.
Suswam at a civic reception held in Konshisa local government of the state berated the new political parties springing up in the country, saying that, those “little, little parties that are merging and waiting to cash in on the mistakes of the PDP are living in illusion as they would fail woefully.”
Former PDP national chairman, Barnabas Gemade is the senator currently representing the zone.
Earlier, the celebrant who is a member of the governing board of the Benue state College of Education (COE), Oju, Awuhe Ikongo urged the governor to contest for senate as the people want him to continue his good works.
Awuhe had told the cheering party supporters who thronged the Shangev-Tiev square for the event that Suswam remains the answer to their senatorial demand for a capable leadership in 2015 because he imbibed the footstep of the late Senator Joseph Tarka.
