The wife of brain-impaired Governor Danbaba Suntai yesterday admitted that her husband was physically unfit to resume official duties as the chief executive of Taraba State.
Mrs. Suntai made the admission when a PDP fact-finding committee led by Senator Hope Uzodinma visited the ailing governor today.
The Acting Governor of Taraba, Umar Garba, as well as the Speaker of the Taraba State House of Assembly, Haruna Tsokwa, accompanied Mr. Uzodinma.
Mrs. Suntai as well as Senator Emmanuel Bwatcha were also present at the meeting.
Two sources said that the meeting with Mr. Suntai lasted only 10 minutes. One source disclosed that the state’s Acting Governor had to introduce himself to the ailing governor, as Mr. Suntai failed to recognize him.
After exchanging pleasantries, the team met with Mr. Suntai’s wife as photojournalists were briefly ushered in to take photos.
It has also emerged that Mrs. Suntai then confessed to members of the Uzodinma committee and an enlarged body of stakeholders that her husband was unfit to run the affairs of the state.
One source sated, “She told the group that the governor was only brought back home [from an American hospital where he was being treated] because he was homesick.”
The ailing governor’s wife then suggested that Mr. Suntai would be taken out of the country in less than a month in order to undergo additional rehab.
The Uzodinma-led stakeholders’ meeting was the culmination of a series of meetings the Acting Governor had held during his recent trip to Abuja.
I Have often expressed the fact that a country or state is not for one person, so no one should think of Pocketing it as if its a Sole inheritance.
Health is wealth! We wish him a Speedy Recovery in Jesus Name
