…We must walk the talk — Suswam, Moro

Daily Trust - - EDUCATION - From Hope Abah, Makurdi

Ex-Gov­er­nor Gabriel Suswam and a for­mer In­te­rior Min­is­ter, Abba Moro, have urged the PDP in Benue State to walk the talk if it must take over the state in 2019 from the APC.

The duo made the re­mark at the PDP stake­hold­ers’ meet­ing held on Tues­day, in Makurdi.

Suswam, who al­leged that all in­sti­tu­tions of gov­ern­ment in the state were vir­tu­ally at the brink of col­lapse as a re­sult of in­com­pe­tent ad­min­is­tra­tion in the past two years, charged the party faith­ful to do the need­ful by work­ing to­wards re­mov­ing the APC.

On his part, Moro ac­cused the APC-led gov­ern­ment in the state of mort­gag­ing the fu­ture of the peo­ple.

But the Chief Press Sec­re­tary to Gov­er­nor Sa­muel Or­tom, Terver Akase, in his re­ac­tion, told our correspondent that the PDP lacked moral jus­ti­fi­ca­tion to dis­credit his prin­ci­pal.

Akase said it was worth re­mind­ing both Suswam and Moro that Benue peo­ple re­jected them in the 2015 elec­tion be­cause they looted and raped the state dry and in broad day light.
