Jalingo - Joseph Kunini, Majority Leader of the Taraba House of Assembly on Wednesday rejected the resolution of the PDP fact-finding committee that Alhaji Garba Umar should continue as the state acting Governor.
He said this at a news conference in Jalingo, alleging that the committee had violated a court order of June 4 which restrained it from investigating the health condition of Gov. Danbaba Suntai.
Kunini called on President Goodluck Jonathan to "use his wealth of experience and authority to ensure that the matter is settled as provided by the constitution''.
"We also want Taraba people and other Nigerians to disregard Hope Uzodima's committee's pronouncement on Taraba as it lacks the powers to do so," he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN reports that the majority leader was accompanied by seven of the 24 members of the assembly.
They are Charles Maijankai, Istifanus Gbana, Abel Diah, Daniel Gani, Mark Useni, Charles Audu and Gambo Maikudi.
Suntai returned to the state on Aug. 25 after 10 months of medical treatment abroad, following his involvement in a plane crash in October 2012.
