Peter Terna Suswam (born 5 September 1991) is a Nigerian footballer who plays for FK Kukësi in Albania, as a right defender.

Club career[edit]

Born in Konshisha, Suswam began his senior career at the age of 16 with Wikki Tourists FC. In 2009, after two seasons, he was sold to fellow Nigeria Premier League team Lobi Stars FC.[1]

In the 2010 offseason Suswam moved abroad and signed with Vitória Futebol Clube, appearing rarely for the Setúbal-based outfit over the course of three top division campaigns. In late 2013 he trialed for Georgian club FC Guria Lanchkhuti, but left after failing to agree to the economic terms.[2]

International career[edit]

Suswam was called up for the Nigerian national team camp prior to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa by coach Lars Lagerbäck, after helping the national B-team win the 2010 WAFU Nations Cup.[3] He made his debut on 25 May against Saudi Arabia, but did not make the final cut.

In 2011, Suswam played all the games and minutes with the under-20s in the FIFA World Cup held in Colombia, scoring in a 5–2 group stage win against Croatia[4] as the Super Eagles eventually reached the quarterfinals.
