Lawmakers in Jalingo, Taraba State have summoned returnee State Governor, Mr. Dambaba Suntai to appear before the house to enable it ascertain if he is mentally and physically fit to carryout state responsibilities.
The summon came just a day after the governor wrote the Taraba State House of Assembly of his intention to resume his duty as governor of the state.
His deputy, Alhaji Garba Umar had acted as governor in the last 10 months until his arrival from medical trip abroad. We gathered that lawmakers who besieged his home shortly after his arrival on Sunday were not allowed to see the ailing governor.
Suntai arrived the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport on Sunday looking frail and unable to speak. He was helped out of the plane that brought him but managed to wave to the crowd who have arrived the airport to welcome him. Suntai has not said a word since his arrival. He was flown abroad for medical treatment when his private jet crashed, killing some of his aides.
