SUNTAI SHAMES DETRACTORS •Steals show at reconciliation meeting

Governor of Taraba State, Danbaba Suntai, yesterday put to shame all those who have been spreading rumours that he is either brain dead or incapable of recognsing people and effectively communicating with them.

Suntai, who spent about 10 months receiving treatment abroad after the plane crash of October 25 last year, stole the show during a reconciliation meeting in the state capital convened by the national headquarters of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). He did not only easily identity those in attendance but also communicated intelligibly throughout the meeting with the PDP Reconciliation Committee headed by Senator Hope Uzodinma.

One account of the meeting held at the Government House said that Suntai pleaded for forgiveness and understanding from the people of the state, saying it was through forgiveness and reconciliation that the state could move forward.

According to the report, ‘The governor said he was happy to receive the delegation and solicited for prayers to see him through his present predicament.

‘As he shook hands with each member of the committee, the acting governor, the Speaker and others in attendance, Suntai said, “I am happy to see you, please pray for me. Forgive me if I have made mistakes.”
‘When he shook hands with Tsokwa, he said, “Mr. Speaker, you know my problem. Please, I want you to help me to pray. God will help all of us.

‘Turning to the the PDP National Secretary, North-East, Bala Endefo, the governor said, “This one, I have been quarrelling with him. Today, I forgive you.” ’
Speaking with journalists after the meeting, Uzodinma also indicated that Suntai is recovering very fast even though he is not yet in a position to fully resume duties.

Uzodinma’s words: “The governor is relatively very healthy and he has no disagreement with his deputy. In fact, he is   in support of the fact that the acting governor should continue and should consult with him on major issues pending when he is ready to take over the full governance of the state.”

Also yesterday, Governor Suntai received the chairmen of the 16 local government councils in the state, who paid him a solidarity visit. Addressing newsmen after the visit, Chairman of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria, Mr. Kallamu Alhamdu, said the governor was hale and hearty and was able to interact with them with full alertness.
