Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar
By Chuks Okocha
Like the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has called on all Nigerians to pray fervently for the speedy recovery of Governor Danbata Suntai of Taraba State who was evacuated from the National Hospital in Abuja yesterday for further treatment abroad as a result of the injuries he sustained after a plane crash in Yola last Thursday.
Atiku, in a statement released by his media office in Abuja, expressed his sympathy over the incident, as he described Governor Suntai as a man actively committed to creating harmony, unity, tolerance and peaceful co-existence among the diverse groups in Taraba State.
The former vice president said as an indefatigable advocate of peaceful co-existence, Suntai is one of the youngest politicians for whom he has high regard.
According to the Turaki Adamawa, such a politician with a passion for unity deserves the prayers of all Nigerians at this difficult moment of his life.
He said Governor Suntai is always close to his heart because they share a common passion for ethnic and religious tolerance in the country.
