The mystery surrounding the whereabouts of Enugu State Governor Sullivan Chime started to clear this afternoon when the Save Enugu Group (SEG) announced that its specially commissioned investigators had located the governor on a hospital bed in London. “This,” said SEG Convener Maxi Okwu (Ikenecheoha II) in an open letter addressed to Enugu State Acting Governor Sunday Onyebuchi, “is contrary to the official ENSG position that our Governor was on vacation enjoying his accumulated leave.”
According to Okwu in a letter released to the public about an hour ago: “Today makes it FOUR MONTHS since the last public citing of our able Governor. We had always known that he would not stay away for so long on VACATION unless circumstances where above his control. Pro-actively we commissioned our own investigators who tracked him down to Wellington Humane Hospital Swiss cottage London.
“It is therefore clear that all along officials of your government were lying to the people of Enugu State. The health status of any public official, particularly Chief Executives like a State Governor is not a private matter.
"The people have a right to know as invariably their tax is being deployed to take care of that officer.
“In the light of the above we DEMAND
1. That your make a broadcast to the people of Enugu appraising then on the true situation of their Governor.
2. That you apologize on behalf of your government for all the falsehood dished out by your information managers.
3. That all persons involved in this grave misconduct be summarily sanctioned.
4. That you invite the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Enugu branch, ably led by His Grace Bishop Emmanuel Olisa Chukwuma to organize an interdenominational prayer and fasting session for one week for divine intervention for our ailing Governor.”
News Express reports that the state government, which last week dismissed SEG as a group of attention seekers, has yet to respond to the points raised in today’s letter.
