Taraba Assembly declares ailing Gov. Suntai unfit to resume governorship duties

The Speaker of Taraba State House of Assembly, Haruna Tsokwa, has announced that the lawmakers have decided to ask Governor Danbaba Suntai to go back to the United States to continue his treatment.

The lawmakers asked the governor to return to the U.S. to continue his rehabilitation programme and only come back to run his office when he is fully fit.

Mr. Tsokwa, who addressed journalists in Jalingo on Thursday morning, said the decision of members followed their visit to Mr. Suntai on Wednesday night.

He said the lawmakers were convinced Mr. Suntai was unfit to return to office.

The 24 members of the Assembly had on Wednesday evening visited the governor after resolving at their sitting earlier Wednesday to meet with Mr. Suntai to confirm his true state of health before taking any position on his letter stating his intention to resume office.


A welcomed decision for the sake of Suntai's health! His family and cohorts should learn from history. Its better to be referred to as the former governor than the late governor.


  1. Gud decision taken by the lawmakers.

  2. The crazy fight for power in naija. Pathetic
