According to Sahara Reporters, a well known source has confirmed Governor Chime Sullivan to be in Cromwell Hospital, located in London UK. Ever since the Governor went on leave in September 2012, there have been all sorts of speculations about his whereabouts including his health condition.
According to the same source, the Governor was reported to have travelled to India initially for medical purposes while on leave, but in recent months, his condition has continued to spiral down, hence his relocation to the UK. Reports also state that his absence from seat has left the State in a dire condition, with all manner of criminal activities and upheaval including the assassination of Emeka Agwu in December 2012, a man who comes from the same local government area as the Governor, Udi.
Presently, the state of affairs is being handled by the Chief of Staff, Mrs Ifeoma Nwobodo, while the Deputy Governor, Sunday Onyebuchi is under limited and restricted responsibilities including spending not more than N500,000 at a go, due to his neophytes status within the Government.
Efforts by the citizens of Enugu State under the umbrella of “Save Enugu Group” to get Onyebuchi to comment on the Governor Chime’s absence has proved futile.
