Information available to 247ureports.com indicates that the political divide within Bauchi State administrative quarters has grown wider and wildly out of control for the executive arm of the state government. The Governor has resorted to sacking of civil servants of the State suspected to have relationships with the perceived political opposition. According to latest information, the Bauchi State Governor recently dismissed the Medical Director of Azare General Hospital, Dr. Baba Azare, for having received donations from the public for the upkeep of the dilapidated and abandoned hospital.

The management of the hospital along with the community leaders and stakeholders had in many occasion appealed to state government for assistance over the dilapidated state of the hospital – and assistance for the lack of power sources at the hospital. The requests and plead were not responded to.
The management team at the hospital, after having been snubbed by the State governor, turned to the public for assistance. The management along with the leaders of the immediate community began seeking out well-to-do for assistance. One of the sons of Bauchi who the team reached was Air Commodore Malami Soja Gololo. He wiling-fully donated to the hospital. He gave a Transformer, made funds available for the repair of the old generator, and funds for the completion and furnishing of the Hospital’s Mosque.
Prior to accepting the donations, the hospital was operating without power supply – had no generating sets to supply electricity and had no power supply from the national power grid. The hospital operated in darkness. One of the small generator which the hospital had was donated by a student who was attached to the hospital for her “IT” industrial Attachment. He had donated an “I pass my neighbor” generator to one of the departments of the hospital.
Meanwhile, the Governor, Barrister Abubakar has extended his net of investigation and/or possible sack to include members of the governing council of the Hospital. Already, the governor has issued query to the said members and has instructed that they report to his office immediately.
A source from Bauchi government house spoke with 247ureports.com regarding the latest sack, he labeled the action by the governor as the actions of a paranoid governor. The source claims the governor is perpetually preoccupied by the actions or inactions of his supposed political opponents. “We are under paranoia”.
