Jonathan describes Suswam as a “dependable governor and an astute administrator”

President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday described Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue as a “dependable governor and an astute administrator” who had given leverages to his people.

Jonthan, represented by Vice President Namadi Sambo, made the remark at the public presentation of a book titled: “Suswam, politics and governance in Benue: An insider’s account” in honour of the governor in Abuja.

The president said that the governor was a committed and reliable politician, adding that “he carries out both state and national tasks with dexterity”.

“I am not surprised that a 23-chapter book with a total of 320 pages could be written from his few years of impeccable service to the state.

“One thing that endears me to Benue is the peaceful ambience and culture of the people. No wonder many Nigerians have made the place their home,” Jonathan said.

In the contribution of the state to the country’s economy, the president said Benue remained the hub of the country’s agriculture.

He said that the transformation of the agricultural sector by the governor had imparted positively on the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Jonathan said effort was on to curtail the regular complaints of produce glutting in the state.

    First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your head before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my
    thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing
    however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
