At Last The Ailing Governor Suntai Speaks Briefly On Videotape

The Ailing Governor of Taraba State, Danbaba Suntai
The bizarre spectacle of power grab by brain damaged governor of Taraba State, Danbaba Suntai continued today in Jalingo as cabal led by his wife and a Nigerian senator Emmanuel Bwatcha. The event was a swearing in for new cabinet members for the governor.
It happened at the dining room of Mr. Suntai at the Governor's Lodge in Jalingo. Suntai forcefully read a few minutes of speech broadcast on state TV. However, he was unstable and unclear. The ailing governor spoke in a manner that brought more doubt to his letter purportedly transmitted to the speaker. See the video below:

After the swearing-in, the speaker of the state assembly walked in to see Suntai but the ailing governor did not recognize him and others but the video was edited to look as though the speaker's delegation was part of the swearing in ceremony.

A source close to the faction in the state assembly loyal to acting Gov.Umar revealed that the assembly would have no alternative but to initiate impeachment moves against Gov. Suntai and save the state from avoidable bloodshed. It was further gathered that some of the legislators had started collecting signatures preparatory to the governor’s impeachment.

Members of the cabal, propping up the ailing Governor to grab power, are listed as Sylvanus Giwa, Senator Emanuel Bwatcha, Haruna Manu, of the the house of representatives, state PDP chairman, Victor bala, Aminu Jika, who was sworn in as the new chief of staff and the new Secretary to the state government, GT Kataps.
