The governor’s wife, Hauwa Danbaba Suntai, made this known in a telephone interview with NAN on Tuesday in New York.
She said that all arrangement had been concluded for the return of the governor, who had spent some months at the rehabilitation centre, following the injury he suffered in last October’s air crash in Adamawa.
Hauwa also expressed the family’s appreciation to all who had in many ways supported them throughout the trying moment.
NAN also learnt that some Nigerians living in New York have volunteered to accompany the governor home.
On August 3, members of the Peoples Democratic Party Fact-finding Committee on the Taraba political situation, led by its chairman, Sen. Hope Uzodinma, paid solidarity visit to the governor at the rehabilitation centre.
Uzodinma was accompanied by the Special Adviser to the PDP National Chairman on INEC and Inter-party Affairs, Alhaji Shittu Mohammed, the Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Alhaji Ahmed Gulak, Sen. Abubakar Gada and the Consul-General of Nigeria in New York, Amb. Habib Habu.
“We are impressed with what we have seen and we thank God for that. We will take back home what we have seen and we will inform the leadership of the party.
“We are impressed; we are also happy that the governor is recovering. We will still go back home and relate what we have seen,’’ he said after the visit.
