Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu Has Cancer

By SaharaReporters, New York

Enugu State governor, Sullivan Chime, has Thyroid cancer according to one of the sources knowledgeable about his true medical condition.

The governor who was visited by colleagues in London last Tuesday developed swellings around his left cheek last year that was diagnosed as Thyroid cancer.

The governor has reportedly undergone three surgeries to remove parts of his thyroid glands and lymph nodes that left him unable to speak for several months.

“Although Mr. Chime has began speaking these days, his left cheek remains swollen, which accounted for the reason he hid his left cheek from the camera in the photo released to Saharareporters on Tuesday”, said our source

Mr. Chime took a group photograph with the governors of Akwa Ibom, Benue, and Rivers during a visit to see him in London on Tuesday.

Our source stated that the cancer did not go away and has actually metastasized, spreading to other parts of his body.
