Governor Bala Muhammed of Bauchi State has been hospitalized in London over an undisclosed illness.
The development was revealed in a statement released by the Governor’s Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mukhtar Gidado.
The Governor had sent a special message to the people of the state from his hospital bed in London ahead of the Supreme Court ruling in the appeal against his victory in the election.
The Governor in the statement released had expressed gratitude to his patriotic supporters.
“I am in hospital in London but we strongly believe that Allah is sufficient for us and He is Able and Capable to give us victory! Cheers, success shall be ours InshaAllah! Cheers to you all.”
“I promised to recognise and reward those who contributed positively to my movement and showed loyalty to the Bauchi Project.”
“The period of the Supreme Court judgement is a moment that God has shown him his real supporters while it is also the time when detractors, within and outside his fold are exposed.”
Recall that the Supreme Court had adjourned the petition before it on Monday due to noise, ill health of one of the judges and crowd issues in the courtroom.
Following the resumption of the cases before the apex Court, the Supreme Court on Tuesday for the second time adjourned the Bauchi State governorship petitions filed before it.
