The governor of Bauchi State, Senator Bala Abdulkadir Muhammed, is among the dignitaries of the Supreme Court today, Monday, when the Apex Court ruled on the March 9 government election.
The governor was absent from the court session last week when he was hospitalized in London.
The rumor that he was bedridden, forced the Bauchi state government to dispel reports suggesting that Bala Mohammed could not return anytime soon to continue performing his official duties.
A statement signed by the Special Senior Media Assistant to the Governor, Mukhtar Gidado, said: “Some members of the opposition, after the ongoing Supreme Court process, have unfortunately hinted that the Governor is in the UK, for & # 39; long haul & # 39; because of what they call their deteriorating health condition. "
In the last court session, former Bauchi state governor Mohammed Abubakar, who left the court raising his hands to signal "four plus four", was hit by bottles of water by people who allegedly supported Bala Mohammed.
While the former governor was being taken away by security, the angry mob continued to sing "karya ne!" And "Barawo!"
The former governor and his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, are challenging Bala Mohammed's statement as elected governor of the state, by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
It has been noted that some politicians and other stakeholders in Bauchi have been spending "sleepless nights" pending the outcome of the Supreme Court's verdict on the government election, due today.
Meanwhile, the Bauchi State Coalition of Elders for Peace and Good Governance has appealed to the citizens of the state to accept the outcome of the state's March 9 Supreme Court verdict, the government election would be in good faith.
