THE bauchi State Gov­er­nor, Se­na­tor bala Mo­hammed, has been ad­mit­ted to a Lon­don hospi­tal ahead of the Supreme Court’s judg­ment on some elec­tion pe­ti­tions in­clud­ing the gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion in the state.

This was con­tained in a state­ment by the Se­nior Spe­cial As­sis­tant on Me­dia to the Gov­er­nor, Mukhtar Gi­dado.

The PUNCH re­ports that the Supreme Court had fixed Mon­day, Jan­uary 13, for hear­ing of the ap­peal brought against Mo­hammed by the All Pro­gres­sives Congress and its can­di­date, former gov­er­nor Mo­hammed Abubakar.

The Chief Jus­tice of Nige­ria, Tanko Muham­mad, had shifted the judg­ment to Tues­day.

“I am in a 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 In­sha Al­lah! Cheers to you all,” Gi­dado quoted the gov­er­nor as say­ing in the state­ment.
