PDP Professionals insist on Suswam’s removal as Chairman, National Convention Electoral Panel because ‘he will work for Wike, Secondus’


We observe with dismay and total disgust the purported appointment of Gabriel Suswan, a former Governor of Benue State, as the Chairman of the very crucial electoral panel at our upcoming National Convention.
Mr Suswan surely does not represent a symbol of unbiased purity, the very image of sanitizing wholesomeness without which we cannot have a clean, equitable, unsoiled election.
For one, Mr Suswan is a known ally and sworn friend of Mr Nyesom Wike, the Governor of Rivers State who does not hide his brazen sponsorship of Uche Secondus for the National Chairmanship position of our party.
With such an obviously compromised scenario, we do not need a soothsayer to tell us how Mr Suswan will behave as Chairman of such a very important Committee.
Naturally, he will be working for Secondus right from inception.
Mr Suswan’s appointment is, therefore, unacceptable to us. It is very flawed, erroneous, deliberately designed to arrive at a pre-determined solution.
And what is more, Mr Suswan is still very much tainted with various EFCC cases as he battled with issues of personal integrity.
Surely, he is hardly the right person for such a very sensitive job with all his obvious baggage of dishonour trailing him everywhere.
We, therefore, demand that National Caretaker Committee should strike of his name immediately and replace him with a more ethically responsible and wholesome personality.
Barrister Tichus Zungeru, Chairman, PDP Professionals for the Defence of Integrity and Equity.
