Bauchi State Governor, Bala Muhammed is reportedly hospitalised in London for an undisclosed illness.
This was revealed in a statement signed in Bauchi by his Senior Media Special Assistant on Media, Mukhtar Gidado.
The statement quoted a special message sent by the governor from his hospital bed in London to the people of the state ahead of the supreme court hearing of the appeal against his election.
The Governor expressed gratitude to his patriotic supporters.
The statement reads in part: “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.”
