A former Commissioner of Police, Abubakar Tsav, has urged Taraba State House of Assembly to constitute a medical board to determine whether Gov. Danbaba Suntai is fit to continue in office.
Tsav, who was Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Makurdi.
He said that the precarious situation in the state could only be salvaged by the intervention of such a board.
He expressed regrets that some people were using the governor’s ill health to achieve political gains by deliberately concealing his true medical status.
Tsav, therefore, called on the state legislature to intervene in order to salvage the situation by constituting the board.
He also called on those capitalising on Suntai’s ill health to achieve political gain to desist from such acts or face the wrath of God.
“Enough of this greed for political power, the Nigerian Constitution is being put to test here, and I urge the Taraba Assembly to come to the rescue.
“They should constitute a medical board to examine the mental and medical fitness of Gov Danbaba Subtai to determine whether or not he is fit to continue in office as governor of the state.
“It is unfortunate that such politicians do not care about the governor’s ill health, all they care for is themselves, is it that the governor does not have relatives who will stop this senseless gamble with his health,’’ he queried.
He warned the cabal, using his ill health as a platform to perpetuate their political agenda on the state to fear God by acting responsibly.
