It’s been almost 5 months since Governor Sullivan Chime left the country under cloudy circumstances for treatment of what is believed to be cancer. However, State Commissioner for Information has insisted that the governor, who is now back in the country only went on vacation.
He arrived Abuja this morning as confirmed by the state Commissioner for Information Chuks Ugwoke who further said he is expected in Enugu state later today and that preparations were on in the state to receive him.
The commissioner who made efforts to convince Nigerians during the interview, further defended the governor’s disappearance from the country, saying the Nigerian constitution did not specify the number of days a governor could spend on vacation.
“There’s no reason to hide why he was away, he went on leave, he was on vacation and the constitution does not state what time the governor must spend.You can use your vacation to do some other things. During his vacation, he had the advantage and opportunity to do some other things he deemed necessary,” the commissioner stressed.
He said the governor’s sudden appearance in the country had put paid to the falsehood being spread by the opposition in the state.
Ugwoke also denied that the state was paralysed because of the absence of Governor Chime. According to him, the governor had handed over to his deputy, Sunday Onyebuchi, who had been acting in that capacity awarding contracts and keeping the state running.
