The Benue State Executive Council has resolved and directed the immediate past Governor of the state,Hon.Gabriel Torwua Suswam to return the sum of N450 million he received as 'overhead in arrears' two days before he left office in May last year.
The Council meeting which was presided over by the Executive Governor of Benue Chief Dr Samuel Ortom, said overheads are not paid in arrears so it was strange for the former Governor to claim that he was owed the said amount.
Suswam was therefore advised to refund the N450 million paid to him to the coffers of the state.
The case of illegal overhead payment to himself is coming on the heals of many other reports of monumental corruption perpetrated during the eight-years of His rule as the Governor of Benue State.
