Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State, who is back in the country after a medical trip that took over three months, shall return to Enugu tomorrow, New Express has learnt.
The embattled governor, as previously reported by News Express, arrived Nigeria’s capital city Abuja early this morning aboard a British Airways flight from London and was promptly driven to the Enugu Lodge in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
“He is due back in Enugu tomorrow, Friday, February 8,” a dependable source close to the Enugu State Government House told News Express.
The source disclosed that Chime “is now conferring with family, friends and top government officials, including the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Hon. Emeka Odo, who was in the advance party to Abuja to receive the governor.”
News Express learnt that another delegation of the Enugu State Government is on the way to Abuja to join in escorting Chime back home tomorrow.
Meanwhile, news of the governor’s return has triggered off jubilation in Enugu. Chime, who underwent surgery in Britain, was away from Nigeria for nearly 140 days, sparking fears about his fate, especially as the state government claimed that he was OK and had only gone on his accumulated leave.
