Yesterday, the Bauchi State Government under the distinguished leadership of His Excellency Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed, CON has donated 30,000 vials of Daptomycin injection worth $14.4 million (equivalent to N7.48 billion), to 14 States of the Federation.
Daptomycin is a lipopeptide antibiotic used in the treatment of systemic and life-threatening infections caused by Gram-positive organisms. Its distinct mechanism of action makes it useful in treating infections caused by multiple drug-resistant bacteria. The World Health Organization, WHO classifies daptomycin as critically important for human medicine.
These singular efforts have further proven that Gov Bala is a nationalist who sees politics beyond party affiliation. I hope other governors will emulate him.
On the other hand, the effort of Isa Sale SSA Multilateral who played a pivotal role can’t be overemphasized
Lastly, I don’t know why KORAU and his Media crew are not criticising or politicizing this even though some APC led states are beneficiaries. ?
