The Caretaker Chairman, Bali Local Government Area of Taraba State and Younger brother to former Governor Danbaba Danfulani Suntai, Hon. Danladi Danfulani Suntai has debunked allegations claiming that his elder brother has been abandoned by the State Government.
Hon. Danladi Suntai who reacted to this allegation at his residence in Jalingo in an interview with TaraVoices yesterday stated that the State Government has been taking care of the former Governor and footing his medical bills contrary to recent allegations which he described as totally false.
“My attention has been drawn to that publication too, and I was surprised to read that myself. That story is completely false. It is not true. Let me first of all say, we the family of the former Governor remains grateful to the present Government. He has not been abandoned by the Government. The Government is taking care of him and footing his medical bills”, Danladi said.
He continued, “I was among the team that took him back to the hospital one year ago, and since then it has been the State Government that has been taking care of settling his hospital bills till date”.
He further described the relationship existing between his brother and the family, and that of the Adamawa State Governor as personal and not political, saying they have been friends even before his brother became Governor.
The Chairman advised those peddling wrong information about his brother to always get their facts right before coming out on media to talk, stressing that except they want to get cheap popularity and to also tarnish the image of the State Government, saying “it is not true that he has been abandoned, the Government is taking care of him and we remain most grateful to them”.
He also pointed out that, his brother is recuperating at a hospital in Orlando Florida, where he is improving by the day contrary to rumours that his health is deteriorating.
Hon. Danladi commended Governor Darius led administration, stating that the Governor is doing excellently well. He said, “we all know the economic situation of the Country, but for someone to be able to be paying salaries and working at the same time, means, he has the interest of the State at heart and is ready to work. I want to state categorically that, Governor Darius is doing excellently well”.
When asked about his political ambition, Danladi disclosed that, now that he has found himself in politics, he believes it is God’s will, and he returned all glory to God for the wisdom and strength to lead the people of Bali Local Government, stressing that he believes the best is yet to come out and he is willing to do his best and serve his people more.
