Taraba Youths Insist On Public Address By Gov Suntai

A group known as the Coalition of Taraba Youth Movement, has urged on the state’s House of Assembly to summon the governor, Danbaba Suntai, to address the people of the state in order to put an end to the speculations and confusion regarding his return.


President of the coalition, Abubakar Waziri, made the call at a news conference on Monday inJalingo.


Waziri noted that people of the state who had been praying for the ailing governor for the past 10 months deserved to know his true state of health.


“We want Governor Suntai to speak to the people of the state, either through the media or at the House of Assembly. The state is in a state of confusion now because the people do not know what to believe,” he said.


Suntai, flew back into the country on Sunday but has since not spoken publicly to anyone though his close associates continue to say that he is mentally alert and well enough to handle governance in Taraba state.




    His family and personal aides insist that he must rest for at least 72 hours after his return, in accordance with his doctor’s advice.


    However, to the surprise of many on Monday, Suntai reportedly wrote to the leadership of the State House of Assembly informing them of his readiness to resume work.


    Many are doubtful that the letter actually originated from him, hence the youths in the state are calling on the governor to give a public address.


    In the meantime, the acting Governor, Garba Umar has lauded the people of the state for the show of love and affection to the ailing governor when they turned out in large numbers on Sunday to welcome him.
