Suntai surrenders to deputy at last

PDP/presidential panel brokers peace deal

From DAVID MOLOMO, YolaAiling Governor Danbaba Suntai of Taraba State yesterday surrendered to his deputy, Alhaji Garba Umar, to continue to hold forte pending when he would be medically fit to return to work.The governor was involved in air mishap last year. The injury from the accident took him to Germany and the United States for medical attention.

He returned to the country, still ailing, on August 25.

The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Committee set up to resolve the crisis brought by his return and determination to resume work, was headed by Senator Hope Uzodinma, who told reporters yesterday that Governor Suntai has allowed Alhaji Umar to continue to act for him as governor, until he is well enough to perform his functions.

Senator Uzodinma said Suntai has, however, said that there were some actions he would take with due consultation with him, and not to act arbitrarily. The stakeholders, he said,have unanimously agreed that Alhaji Umar should continue to act without any dissident voice, because they (stakeholders) were desirous of moving the state forward.

According to him,there was no crisis in Taraba, expressing the hope that there would not be, and that the committee  had met with the ailing governor, whom, he said was recuperating and that all and sundry should continue to pray for him to recover speedily.

Senator Uzodinma urged the media to continue to help democracy to flourish and not to be used to fan the embers of divisiveness in the polity. He said the press has a significant role to play in moving the nation forward.

The stakeholders comprised of the presidential committee, the National Assembly members from the state, legislators from the House of Assembly, elders and opinion leaders as well as PDP stalwarts from the state and national levels.

The Uzodinma committee arrived in Jalingo, the state capital and swung into action. On arrival at the airport around 12.46pm, he told journalists that they were in Jalingo to interact with their fellow PDP members.

Paying a courtesy call on Suntai, the members said they were in the state to ascertain the governor’s health and pray for his speedy recovery.

Although journalists were not officially allowed to go in along with the committee members, the few that had access to the governor, said that contrary to the assumption that Suntai had been speechless, confirmed that he actually expressed happiness for their visit and prayer.

The sources also confirmed that the ailing governor was able to identify persons, a development that was also contrary to the belief that he was not aware of his environment.

At the venue of the meeting held in the Government House were the Assembly leaders, Taraba lawmakers in the National Assembly, former commissioners, elders of the party and opinion leaders, Senator Uzodinma had appealed to the stakeholders to sheathe their  swords and proffer solution to the crisis at hand.

THE MAN IN THE EYE OF THE STORM HAS SAID HE IS NOT YET MEDICALLY FIT AND HANDED BACK OVER TO HIS DEPUTY BUT ACCORDING TO YOU IDIOT OWERRI, IT IS WICKED AND A BETRAYAL FOR ANYBODY TO TRY TO SHOVE HIM ASIDE JUST BECAUSE HE GOT INVOLVED IN AN AIR ACCIDENT. YOU SEE THIS IS WHY I DO NOT ATTACH ANY IMPORTANCE TO YOU PEOPLE BECAUSE I KNOW THAT YOU ARE ALL RIFF-RAFFS, TOUTS, FAILURES WITHOUT GOOD REASONING FACULTY.

  4. Owerri will not comment on an issue that he could not twist upside down, so Ejike please leave him and his cohorts who have no common senses that can make them reason like intelligent people.
    Suntai can never function beyond his present state even if he grows up to 100yrs of age, so i pray for him to remain staple for the rest of his life.

  5. The man that calls himself Ejike aturu awusa always argue blindly with reasonable Nigerians. Eminent Nigeria citizens living in that country have made frantic effort to rehabilitate this Internet loafer but to no avail . Everybody have abandoned him to his own fate. Worthy Nigerians living in USA like Mr Obidi , Mr Boney London , our eminent senior lecturer here in the forum on political matters Chief Okolie Emeka and host of them had added good advice to deliver this lavatory attendance in New York.
    There was no time we advocated sit-tight syndrome rather we argued that it is too shameful by Taraba state house of Assembly to impeach their governor hence the DG and his Boss have been having cordial relationship before the unexpected occurred to Mr Suntai . That they should give him time to recuperate as a human being from a sick bed. Now that the man who wears the shoe knows where it is pinching him why making jest of ones personal decision to allow his state to move forward ? I still continue to question the rational behind this old fool’s ecstasy concerning living in America? Some of us that now travelled any parts of the world and comes back to Nigeria our fatherland on business trips will now jubilation to Heavenly Kingdom? Those in America they do not experience death , diseases of all kinds , they do not excrete , when they die people from that zone head straight to Heaven to see God and live permanently with Him?
    Is living in abroad a criteria to measure affluence ? I have once lived in abroad for good 13 years . I left the country at age of 23 years. Within those yrs I used to visit my country regularly before I decided to come home to sojourn with my people is that a crime? This 13 years of mine till today is full of good business contacts from China where I spent my own years in abroad. If you are a real man like me come back to Nigeria with your foreign counterpart in business or are you coming to show how lavatories can be washed within seconds?

NO 2 CHALLENGE, IF YOU EVER SAW ANY CHINESE TERRITORY, YOU MUST HAVE DONE THAT AS A PRISONER SERVING WITH HARD LABOUR WHICH IS WHY CONCERNED PEOPLE CONTRIBUTED MONEY FOR YOU AND QUICKLY RETURNED AND DUMPED YOU IN YOUR PRESENT STATE OF BEING UPON RELEASE FROM JAIL. IF IT IS NOT TRUE, TELL NIGERIANS ON THIS FORUM WHAT YOU DID IN CHINA AT 23 YEARS OF AGE ? YES, IT IS A CHALLENGE. SAY IT LOUD. NO 4, YOU MUST HAVE CONTACTED THE DISEASE KILLING YOU NOW FROM CHINESE PRISON BECAUSE FROM EVERY INDICATION, YOU ARE NOT WELL BECAUSE FROM WHAT I SEE OF YOU ON FACEBOOK, YOU ARE ONLY A SKELETON AS IT WERE.

  6. Our dear Senator Hope Uzodinma have seen that the governor cannot rule the state again and they have given him a soft landing.
    So the state will be able to take care of his medical bills and his family. thats okay. Everyone really understand the sentiments attached to this issue but my only worry now is that this scenario will continue to play out in Nigerian politics, whereby a madman or dead man will be asked to keep ruling us one day just because he has been elected before the madness or before his death.
    We should not attach sentiments on the issue that bothers to the lives of majority of Nigerians.
    There must be a stipulated criteria for impeachments and once any governor,president, senator, house of rep member fail short of this criteria, he or she will be removed from office without allowing some crooks who is benefiting from the situation to dictate the pace. Nigeria is country of millions of people and it will not be right for any single person to hold the entire populace to ransom.

  7. @ Owerri, I have advised you several times to avoid this so called Ejike but you have chosen to ignore my advice. One of the challenges in todays’ information technology is the inability to track impersonation easily, otherwise all this lies about residing in New York would have been a thing of the past. But since empirical sturdy analyses tells us that as bodily structure reveals food intake, so also choice and manner of communication reveals both home training and geographical or territorial influence. Therefore no junk head in New York argues blindly like him. Can you imagine Dele Odugbemi saying that Suntai can never function beyond his present state even if he lives 100 years. Isn’t this enough to show one the character and moral content of your attackers ?. Our submission that day was that there is no basis to talk of impeachment since suntai has not violated any known law. And the Senate delegation has proven our stand right. HOWEVER, I AGREE TO THE ISSUE RAISED BY EVANS THAT THERE MUST BE CONSTITUTIONAL PRONUNCEMENT TO REGULATE THE TIME FRAME AN ELECTED OFFICER SHOULD STAY OUT OF OFFICE AS A RESULT OF ILLNESS OR ACCIDENT SO THAT THESE OFFICES WILL NOT BE SEEN AS PERSONAL PROPERTY OR INDISPENSIBLE UNTIL ONES TENURE IS OVER.

  8. I have said it time without number that you guys should stop making this Ejike.New York look popular by exchanging words with him.Who said that Ejike.New York base in USA,who have ever seen him in USA and who dash Monkey banana?

  9. I thought we are here to comment so that other will see and read as well, I believe our comments sometimes contribute to the success of why we are here. I don’t like this idea of us abusing each others. It show’s the level of our maturity, pls lets face the business of the day.
