Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) fact-finding Committee on the Taraba State Political Situation paid a visit to ailing Gov. Danbaba Suntai in New York on Saturday, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
The committee, led by its Chairman Sen. Hope Uzodinma visited the governor at a rehabilitation centre, where he is receiving treatment, following the injury he suffered after an aircraft crash in October 2012.
Uzodinma was accompanied by the Special Adviser to the PDP National Chairman on INEC and Inter-party Affairs, Alhaji Shitu 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.
“We will also visit Taraba State. We will meet all stakeholders in Taraba State, we will also inform them of what we have seen and our party as a family will make sure that the party continues to grow from strength to strength,” he said in an interview.
Uzodinma commended President Goodluck Jonathan and the party’s National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur for setting up the fact-finding committee.
The consul-general also said that the governor was recovering fast.
“I was really amazed about his quick recovery and we must all thank God for the favour done to Suntai, because for anybody to come back from where he had been is not an easy task.
“I know when he was brought here, I met him and continued to visit, now he can take care of himself without any support, his progress is most impressive.”
