The drama in Jalingo took an interesting twist few hours ago when the  Speaker of Taraba State House of Assembly, Haruna Tsokwa, said they have asked  Governor Danbaba Suntai to go back to the United States to continue his treatment.

The lawmakers asked the governor to return to the U.S. to continue his rehabilitation programme and only come back to run his office when he is fully fit.

Tsokwa, who spoke  in Jalingo on Thursday , said  the lawmakers were convinced  Suntai was unfit to return to office.

The 24 members of the Assembly had on Wednesday evening visited the governor after resolving at their sitting earlier Wednesday to meet with  Suntai to confirm his true state of health before taking any position on his letter stating his intention to resume office.

But the lawmakers declined comments after meeting with Suntai on Wednesday , saying they would only speak on Thursday.

The lawmakers did not confirm whether or not they were allowed to meet the governor.
