Taraba governor, Danbaba Suntai who is presently recovering from injuries he sustained in a plane crash yesterday left the Government House to go fishing with his wife, twin children, his younger brother and a retinue of aides.
Reports say the governor who spotted a grey suit, visited his fish pond located near the School of Nursing at Jalingo Bye-pass in the state capital.
Others who accompanied the governor were his Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Media and Publicity, Sylvanus Giwa, and Chief Press Secretary, Hassan Mijinyawa.
The fishes, however, refused to take the governor’s bait with his wife, Hauwa teasing him all through his efforts.
“Kifin sun chuche ni, dun sun liga su chi abichi,” he said in Hausa, meaning: “the fish cheated on me because they are already fed.”
Suntai later got his pound of flesh when Hauwa slipped and almost fell into the pond saying, “If you fall into the water I will fish you out.”
The governor later left with a promise that he would be back at the pond next time ready to catch as many fishes as possible.
