By Saidu Adamu

The burial of former Taraba state governor, late Mr Danbaba Suntai, has been shifted from August 5 to August 19.

Taraba Governor Darius Ishaku announced the shift in the date for the state burial of Suntai.

A press statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Alhaji Hassan Mijinyawa, in Jalingo on Saturday said the new date followed the governor’s consideration of the report submitted to him by the steering committee for burial of the late governor.

“Other activities lined up for the funeral will be announced soon,” Mijinyawa said.

He quoted Gov. Ishaku as describing Suntai as a great leader who impacted positively on the lives of Taraba people and therefore, deserved to be honoured.

Ishaku also urged them to keep praying for the repose of the soul of Suntai and for the protection of his family.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Suntai, who was receiving treatment from injuries he sustained from a plane crash in Oct. 2012, died at a hospital in Florida, U.S. on June 28. (NAN)
