First time since he left the country 135 days ago, Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State,�yesterday, opened up on his condition, saying he is in good health and will soon�return to the�country.
The governor spoke�exclusively�to Vanguard while receiving three governors, who visited him in London, United Kingdom where he is recovering after an illness
Chairman�of the Nigerian Governors Forum, NGF, Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State; Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State and Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue State who constituted the delegation, separately attested to Chime’s state of well being in�telephone interviews�with Vanguard. They said Chime was,�yesterday, moving about, eating and in good health.
The visit of the governors followed unprecedented speculations on the state of Chime’s health.
I’m very great – Chime
Governor Chime’s declaration came as the Speaker of the Enugu State House of Assembly, Eugene Odo, rejected a call by prominent citizens of the state under the aegis of Save Enugu Group (SEG) for the House to invoke the�Doctrine�of Necessity to enthrone the deputy governor of the state, Sunday Onyebuchi as acting governor.
Speaking to Vanguard,�yesterday, Chime said: “am alive�and well, I will be back very, very soon.”
Asked how he felt, the governor in a very strong, cheerful voice said: “I am great, very, very great. Tell Nigerians to discountenance all the rumours about my health.”
Chime is in good shape – Amaechi
Speaking on Chime’s health, Amaechi said: “We saw him in an atmosphere of recovery. We were able to go out with him, he is in good shape and is getting ready to come back�home�very soon. We thank God for what He has done, how He has helped him to recover.”
He has recovered fully – Suswam
Also speaking, Suswam said: ‘Chime has been discharged from the�hospital. He ‘has recovered fully and is physically okay. I was impressed with what I saw. We walked around together, ate together and he is going about on his own.
We must desist from wishing our�leaders�evil – Akpabio
Also speaking on their encounter with Chime, Akpabio said: “He has recovered tremendously, I am very happy and I give glory to God. This our visit to him and the fact that he was able to speak with Vanguard has put paid to all the rumours. Nigerians should learn�how to pray�for their leaders instead of ganging up through NGOs and groups and wishing them evil. We are all human beings. As humans, we can break down anytime which means�we should�be sympathetic with our leaders when they face challenges whether health wise or security wise.�We should�pray for them�instead�of wishing them bad.
