Anxiety over plan to declare Suntai incapacitated

Published by The Nation on Thu, 11 Sep 2014


Taraba State Governor Danbaba Suntais health is stirring controversy again in the state.Yesterday, a group alleged that the state executive council had voted to ask the House of Assembly to declare the governor as incapacitated.According to the group, the intention is to get Suntai, who is expected back from his medical trip abroad this week, impeached to clear the way for acting Governor Garba Umar as governor.Coordinator of Tarabans United for Suntai (TUS), Ezekiel Gambo in a statement said the governors health has considerably improved.He added: We are using this medium to disprove reports emanating from Garba Umar and the Deputy Governors camp that the Suntai is now fully incapacitated, he said.Gambo said the governor will return any time this week.Gambo accused acting Governor Umar and his executive of trying to impeach the governor, with an eye on 2015.Gambo said: The illegal exco has even written to Speaker of the Taraba State House of Assembly, Hon. Josiah Sabo Kente, directing him to set up a medical panel with a view to declare the governor incapacitated.This is a desperate move and one that is typical of Umar.Certain things are very clear: one, Umar has been paying the medical bills of Governor Suntai. At what point then did his benefactor become incapacitated'Do you treat an incapacitated person'Another group, the Taraba Democrats, warned against any plan to destabilise the state by politicians scheming for the 2015 elections.The group issued the warning yesterday against the background of information that Governor Suntai was to be flown back to the country.The statement signed by Mr Aliyu Usman described the report as discomforting in view of what it called relative peace in the state and that the new move could start another power tussle which poses a threat to ongoing push to bring real development to our state.It added: As much as we all pray for.the quick recovery of our dear governor, we are worried that the new plot to bring him back to the country was simply political and a design to create crisis ahead of the governorship primaries of.the PDP holding in November; this is a great disservice to our state.Attempt to start another proxy war between the acting governor and his ailing boss is uncalled for at this delicate moment in our nations history. Our concern is that this fresh attempt may give courage to those who think the governor should be impeached on medical grounds ,the statement noted.We are convinced that the governor should be allowed to receive a thorough medical attention. This is what our dear Danbaba needs now; not another around of political exhibition like the nation witnessed last year, the.group said.It urged President Goodluck Jonathan to intervene before another round of crisis engulfs Taraba state adding that our people want peace and they are fed up with those playing politics with the health of our governor.]]>
