The scene was so emotional, when Adamawa State Governor Mr Murtala Nyako was all tears yesterday as he visited Governor Danbaba Danfulani Suntai at the Government House, Jalingo. Nyako, who is the first caller since Suntai’s return on Sunday from the Hospital Rehabilitation Centre & Home, New York, United States, spent over an hour with his counterpart in his inner sitting room. The duo sat on one chair. Suntai was wearing an ash-colour suit with a blue-black shirt. Nyako was clad in a white agbada and a black cap.
He prayed for Suntai to recover fully. As Nyako prayed, Suntai bowed his head, responding–in a low voice: “Amen, amen”. Prayers over, Suntai clapped his hands and smiled. SEE MORE AFTER CUT>>>>
When Nyako shook Suntai’s hand, telling him he was about to leave, the tears began to drop. It was tears of joy, naijacelebritynews.blogspot.com gathered. The Taraba governor looked smarter yesterday. He also walked without assistance – unlike when he arrived in Abuja on Sunday, aided to walk from the plane onto the tarmac. He wore a stress-free face and was more relaxed. He did not wince, as he did on Sunday. Speaking with the wife of the Taraba Governor, Hajiya Hauwa Suntai, in the main sitting room, Nyako described him as his brother and not only a colleague. “What affects him affects me too. I pray he recovers speedily so that he can continue with the work, where he stopped,” he said. Suntai’s wife expressed appreciation for Nyako’s show of love. Acting governor of Taraba Garba Umar on MOnday said he was happy over his boss’s return. He briefed reporters in his office in Jalingo. Umar appreciated the turnout and urged Taraba people to “sustain the unity and cooperation”.
“I am very happy for the successful homecoming of my boss, the Executive Governor of Taraba State, His Excellency Danbaba Suntai. I appreciate the unity, cooperation and the way everyone turned out. I want to urge Taraba people to sustain this unity and cooperation.
Anyway, it was learnt that the House of Assembly may hold a plenary on Suntai’s homecoming as Suntai has communicated the House in writing about his return.
It would be recalled that Suntai spent about 10 months in Germany and United States, treating the injuries he sustained when a plane he piloted crashed near Yola, Adamawa State on October 25, last year.
