Makurdi residents in Benue state have been thrown into jubilation as the governor-elect, Dr. Samuel Ortom appoints Mr. Dickson Pawa as the Chief Security Officer (CSO) to the government of Benue state.

In a separate interview with some residence in Makurdi on Monday, residence expresses their joy that the appointment of Pawa was a sign of good things to come in Ortoms administration.

According to Wilson Ochigbo a youth activist, ?Good name is better than gold?, insisting that, ?Mr. Pawa did his best for his friend but Suswam was so full of himself that he could not hear the voice of God?.

Mrs Erdoo Terna on her part described the appointment as a reward for truth. ?Governor Ortom knows what he is doing and we are happy to see Pawa back to power. He is a good man who above his official duty still helps the poor people around him, once you see him; he will solve your problem?.

Daily Times could recall that DSP Dickson Pawa was until the eve of the PDP Primary elections of December 2014 was the Aide De Camp (ADC) to the outgoing Governor Gabriel Suswam and the only government official who was bold to advise Suswam professionally and in a good lite in taking the welfare of Benue people seriously.

Some residence who spoke to our reporter on the condition of anonymity said that it is public knowledge in Benue that, when Suswam was listening to his then ADC, his administration was rated one of the best in Nigeria, ?Suddenly, the outgoing governor prefers mediocre and praise singers who soon labeled Mr Pawa as the black sheep?.

?Pushed to the wall where his advice is constantly ignored with the sideline of Mr Pawa from the running of government especially in the areas of his professional duty as the ADC, his duty was later assigned to a police Sergeant who is the orderly to the outgoing governor Mr Julius Donko. Mr Pawa then resigned?.

?He was later transferred to Lagos State by the Police Service Commission where he works as Mopol squadron Commander. Until his latest appointment as the Chief Security Officer to the Governor of Benue State which is the first appointment to be made by the brand new Governor, whose ideology is total liberation of Benue and her people, hope is rekindled in the Food Basket state? Mrs Terna added.

Reports reaching Daily Times said the Nigeria Mobile Police Force Lagos State Command, where Mr Pawa works as commandant until his appoint as CSO to the Governor of Benue State have cried out saying that, now that Mr Pawa has revive the squadron, he is being taken away.

One of the officers who spoke to our correspondent on condition of anonymity says that with their Commandant being taking away from them, morale is now low.

?Mr Pawa knows police job, he does it from his heart, we pray God to give us another Commandant who will be of the zeal Mr Pawa puts into work?, the officer added.

The appointment of Pawa as the Chief Security Officer to the Governor of Benue State takes immediate effect.
