Open letter to Governor Suswam



As an admirer and keen observer of your activities and performance in Benue State, I have not been very pleased with the assignment you’ve been given or took upon yourself since the beginning of the current political imbroglio. You’ve been sending wrong signals to your great fans over there, the Tiv nation and Nigeria as whole.

The good people of Benue State elected you to serve and promote their best interests and not to run errands for the President. You can do your job very well and leave a worthy legacy without getting involved in the pettiness being foisted on our country from the presidency.
The impression from certain quarters is that despite the re-election of Governor Rotimi Amaechi as Nigeria Governors Forum chairman, simply because it is against the wishes of the President, you are all out to run him out of office. What shall it profit you if President Goodluck Jonathan achieves his ambition of removing Amaechi as NGF chairman? What will it add to your own curriculum vitae (CV), if the governor is impeached?

Truth is always bitter. I believe you have gone too far and too deep into this matter. President Jonathan is big enough and has all the machinery to fight his own battles. As a great son of ‘Tiv Awange’, you are too big and far important to be used as human King Kong.
You stand to lose more than what you can possibly gain if you persist and continue on this dangerous road. You’re eroding and wasting your equity on a worthless venture.

Permit me to refresh your memory a bit. There was a minister who wielded stupendous power. He was elevated to a point where he felt secure but after the death of his master, he was surgically removed and clinically eliminated from the system by the cabal. If anyone had foretold the tragedies that would befall Michael Kaase Aondoakaa some years back, he would have called the person a fake prophet.
There are bigger targets to fix your gaze on. Forget about going to the senate in 2015 and forcing your way through. Such moves have been the trend and too predictable.

John Akevi,
Bauchi
