The three aides of Governor Danbaba Suntai of Taraba State involved in last Thursday’s air crash in company of the governor have been transferred to Germany for treatment, the state Commissioner for Information, Mr. Emmanuel Bello, said yesterday.
The movement of the three aides to Germany came as the state government declared that there was no power vacuum in the state. Mr. Bello declared that the deputy governor, Alhaji Sani Abubakar was holding forth for the recuperating governor.
The three aides involved in the air crash are Dasat Iliya, the Aide de Camp, ADC; Timo Dangana, Chief Security Officer, CSO, to the governor; and Joel Dan, Chief Detail. They had earlier been transferred to the National Hospital, weekend.
The movement of the aides from Abuja to Germany, the stage government declared, yesterday, was to ensure that like the governor all possible fears were totally removed.
Bello told Vanguard: “The three aides are in the National Hospital and are all showing great signs of improvement. In fact, one of them was even walking around and others were talking with family members.”
”They are in very, very stable condition. There were only four persons in the plane and there were three aides and they are all doing fine.”
“The governor is fine and all the reports we are getting show that he is doing fine. It is only that we were not taking chances and that is why he was moved to Germany. It is the same for all the other aides. They were moved to Germany as well. There is no preferential treatment as some were trying to insinuate.”
