Senate Minority Leader, George Akume, has described the Benue State Governor, Gabriel Suswam, as a drowning man, who is desperate to evade a possible judicial verdict that could sack him from office.

Sen. Akume, Suswam’s predecessor at Benue Government House, made the observation through a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Constituency and Media, Becky Orpin.

He said: “The desperate attempts by Suswam to stop the courts from inquiring into the avalanche of petitions and cases against him, including the certificate forgery allegation, clearly shows that there is something wrong with him.”
