In response to insinuations that he has taken the position of his injured boss, Taraba State deputy governor, Alhaji Garba Umar, said he has not been sworn-in as acting governor.
Umar, while addressing journalists at the Government House, Jalingo said he remains the deputy governor.
The deputy governor said that Governor Danbaba Suntai was responding to treatment.
“I remain the deputy governor of Taraba State. I am not acting. I can’t be sworn-in as acting governor because my boss is still alive,” he said.
Umar also denied claims of attack on him by thugs on the evening his boss was involved in the crash, as reported by some newspapers.
Suntai, who was involved in a plane crash, has been flown abroad for treatment.
