Bauchi State Governor, Senator Bala Muhammed, has been hospitalized in London for an undisclosed illness.
In a special message sent to the people of the state by the governor from his hospital bed in London ahead of the supreme court hearing of the appeal against his election, the governor urged the people to keep calm, adding that God is in charge.
“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,” the governor was quoted in a statement by his spokesman, Mukhtar Gidado.
The statement reaffirmed the administration’s commitment to the lofty ideals of new Bauchi Movement, pledged to lead with justice, equity and humility.
He promised to recognise and reward those who contributed positively to the Bauchi Project.
According to him, 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”.
The Governor expressed gratitude to those he called patriotic supporters.
