Buhari’s foreign medical trip a disgrace to Nigeria- PDP

The People Democratic Party has expressed worry over the trip of President Mohammadu Buhari to abroad.

According to PDP, the President should be ashamed of himself for going for medical treatment in well-equipped hospitals abroad, our hospitals and medical personnel are in very sorry situation.

PDP added that mllions of Nigerians suffer, with many dying on a daily basis from conditions that have simple medical solutions.

Acccording to its spokesman, Kola Ologbodiyan“It is indeed heartrending that Nigerians are suffering this huge misfortune of having this highly insensitive, incompetent and corrupt leadership of very selfish individuals who do not care about the welfare of other citizens.”

“More saddening is that all the institutions, policies and programmes established by the PDP, which hitherto ensured access to affordable healthcare for Nigerians, have been wrecked by the Buhari administration.”

Also,Hunan Right Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA described as “shameful and regrettable the decision of President Buhari to continue to travel to London at serious costs to the taxpayers to take care of his personal health needs”.

A joint statement yesterday by its National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, and the National Media Affairs Director, Miss Zainab Yusuf, said the President’s medical trips abroad did not show a good example

The organisation told the  Presidency that Health Minister, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, on December 7, 2020 in Abuja unveiled Nigeria’s nine-point, medium-term health sector roadmap which he said was guided by the President’s “Health Sector Next Level Agenda” of 2019.

“But as at today, what this frequent foreign health tourism by President Buhari shows is that he has no definite roadmap for fixing the public healthcare sector…

“This is absolutely intolerable and unacceptable,” HURIWA said.
