JALINGO – Injured Governor Danbaba Suntai of Taraba State, who is currently receiving treatment in a German hospital, is recovering faster than expected, the State Information Commissioner, Emmanuel Bello, has said.

Bello told Vanguard in an interview that from available information, the governor was doing very well and would be able to return to his duty post soon, but could not say when that would be.

Bello said there was no justification for the calls for the transmission of any letter to the Taraba Assembly to enable an acting governor to take charge, since, according to him, the governor was still in good health.

The Commissioner pointed out that since the air crash involving the governor, all tiers of government in the state had been working smoothly and discharging their responsibilities to the people of the state.

He said: “As it is today, Taraba is very safe and working smoothly under the leadership of the Deputy Governor, Garba Umar, who is also discharging his duties effectively to the admiration of the people.

“Governor Danbaba Suntai is doing very well and we believe he will soon return to continue with the good work he has been doing in the state.

“There has been no disruption of any aspect of life in the state, as the legislature and the executive members and the judiciary are functioning and meeting the needs of the people.

“Therefore, those calling for the transmission of letter of incapacitation by the governor are merely misguided elements, who do not understand what is going on in the state.”
