The Senatorial ambition of Governor ..., 11 Aug 2014 [cached]
The Senatorial ambition of Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue State has put him in a collision course with Barnabas Gemade, the incumbent senator, who has not hidden his intention to return to the red chamber in 2015
Suswam's quest to represent the zone in the Senate has not only divided the people of the zone, it has also drawn the battle line between him and Barnabas Gemade, a former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who presently occupies the seat.
Like many other lawmakers, Gemade has made no secret of his desire to return to the Senate. He has declared at various fora that he wants to go back to the Senate in 2015. The feud between these brothers is further complicated by the fact that they are members of the same political party. Having held the highest position in the party, Gemade is believed to be relying on the presidency and the influence of his former subordinates in the state. He is believed to be enjoying the support of PDP's top hierarchy.
Some of his close associates are said to be working assiduously to ensure that Gemade doesn't get the PDP ticket to represent the zone.

In an interview with a newspaper, Gemade accused Suswam of being disrespectful.
Gemade stated.
While Gemade appears to enjoy the support of party members at the national level, Suswam seems to be enjoying unrivalled loyalty at home in Benue.
