Recall, The Witness had reported that Bawa suddenly stopped talking and slumped while giving his goodwill message at a programme organised by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC). He was later assisted to his seat by some persons, including Ali Isa Pantami, Minister of Communications and Digital Economy.
Speaking when he appeared on Channels Television’s Politics Today hours later, Bawa said he was taken to the hospital where his doctors told him that he was dehydrated.
“While giving my goodwill message during the programme organised by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), there was a sort of dizziness on me and I had to excuse myself from the stage.”
“I went straight to the hospital where the doctors confirmed to me that everything about me is okay except for the fact that I’m a bit dehydrated and need to take a lot of water.
“Straight away from the hospital, I went back to the office and now I’m back at home.”
