.The chairman, Senate Committee on Power, Senator Gabriel Suswam, has commended the immediate-past Chief Commissioner of the Public Complaints Commission (PCC), Hon. Chille Igbawua, over his relentless and deep sense of commitment in the struggle for the evetual restoration of Mbagwa and Mata State constituencies in Benue State.
LEADERSHIP recall that Mbagwa and Mata State constituencies were earlier created from the then Unshongo state constituency some years ago but the decision was rescinded.
Suswam, who represents Benue North-East senatorial district in the National Assembly, made the commendation during the celebration of the restoration of State constituencies in Lessel, the Ushongo local government area headquarters and the defection of hundreds of All Progressives Congress (APC) faithful into the fold of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
Suswam, who is the immediate-past governor of Benue State, stressed that Hon. Igbawua, a top governorship aspirant on the platform of the PDP for the 2023 election, played a key and supportive roles by always making himself available despite his tight schedules to ensure that what was taken away from his people of Ushongo LGA was restored after years of legal and other intrigues.
He called on other sons and daughters of the LGA to show similar zeal and commitment on issues that affect their people, adding that nations can only grow when everyone plays his or her roles in the overall interest of all.
Suswam further called on the people of Ushongo to keep faith with the PDP as the only political party that has the capacity and agenda to take Nigeria out of the woods just as he expressed concerns that hunger and poverty have reached an alarming stage in Nigeria.
The lawmaker also told the traditional rulers who had gathered for the celebration of the restoration of the state constituencies that as their representative in the Senate, he will continue to work for the interest of the entire Benue North-East zone and ensure that they continue to enjoy the dividends of democracy.
