A former Commissioner of Health in Borno State, Dr. Salisu Kwaya Bura, has said that he will remain eternally grateful to the Borno State Governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum for the opportunity he gave him to serve the state in the capacity of a Commissioner.

Dr. Kwaya Bura spoke shortly after a press release by the government relieving him of his appointment.

The ex-commissioner denied the speculations and rumour that his appointment was terminated due to political reasons, stating that out of thousands of people who lobbied to be appointed to head the Ministry of Health in Borno State, the governor at that time found him worthy to take up the job.

According to him, ” I never knew that I wiould be appointed Commissioner, but it happened and from that day I knew that one day I would leave this position like many others who had served and are no longer occupying the position today This is life and is about a scene. Someone will come and play his part and leave. I believe this is what happened and the governor of Borno State in his own wisdom took such a decision today.”

Dr. Kwaya Bura said, the decision did not come to him as a surprise because he did not appoint himself in the first place, even as he believes that someone else has the right to be appointed by the governor as he pleases.

He said further, ”if there are other reasons alien to normal administrative changes, the government would have made it known since the press release came from the government.

“I do not believe that this is political or anything to do with my role in the COVID-19 team as being speculated because I am a professional medical personnel and I will continue to play vital roles in the administration of good health to Borno State.

“When things happened like this, there are a lot of rumours making the rounds, but I am still with the government and remain professional in my chosen field. I will continue to help the state and give advice where necessary and whenever I am invited to do so. I believe I have a higher calling that informed this shift.
After all, we have faith that it is Allah who appoints one and at the time he so wishes,” Dr. Kwaya Bura said.
