Convalescing governor of Taraba State, Mr. Danbaba Suntai had a visit from Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God on Tuesday.
The visit, which was arranged by close associates of Gov. Suntai is part of the efforts to discourage the Taraba State House of Assembly from swearing the deputy governor of the state as the substantive governor.
Orijoreporter gathered that the revered man-of-God was handsomely rewarded for the PR trip, which was made to help the sick governor’s case.
Confirming Pastor Adeboye’s visit, Benue State Governor Gabriel Suswam who also visited the ailing governor at Sea View Hospital Rehabilitation Centre and Home in New York on the same day said Suntai was able to recognize him, his wife (Yemisi Suswan) and other members of his family who accompanied him.
His words: “He is fine, he is doing very, very well and he is walking on his own and when I was with him, they brought food to him and he ate.
“When I was with him, we made a call to the vice-president and he (Suntai) spoke with him. He even told me Pastor Enoch Adeboye came to visit him the same day.
“He is walking and it is a living miracle that we are seeing,” the Benue governor further revealed.
Governor Suntai survived when the private aircraft he was piloting crashed near Yola, Adamawa State on October 25, 2012 and he was subsequently transferred to the National Hospital in Abuja before he was evacuated for further treatment in Germany.
He was transferred to the John Hopkins University Hospital in the United States in March and discharged from the hospital last week.
