Nigerians can’t afford going abroad for medical treatment again – Buhari

NBET staff thanks Buhari for reinstating Dr. Amobi 


President Muhammadu Buhari has said that Nigerians can no longer afford to continue going abroad for medical treatment.

Buhari who was represented at the inauguration of some projects at Alex Ekwueme Federal University Teaching Hospital in  Abakaliki, Ebonyi state on Friday, by minister of science and technology Ogbonnaya Onu, said that Nigerians going abroad for treatment is not good for the country’s image and must stop.

Buhari made travelling to the United Kingdom for his personal medical treatment a hallmark of his first term in office as civilian head of state and even flew out of the country for medical treatment after his election victory in 2019

The president also disclosed that his administration has paid attention to the health of Nigerians and will continue doing so with the commissioned projects.

“Nigerians have suffered so much going abroad for medical treatment. This is not good for us and it must stop because we can’t afford it again.

“We have paid very serious attention to the health of our people and will continue to do so. The projects you celebrate their completion today were seriously affecting the workings of this teaching hospital.

“But today, we can say their completion have started helping to improve on the performance and welfare of both the staff and patients of this hospital.

“I wish to use this medium to congratulate the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha, and his team in the Ecological Fund Office; the project contractor, Messrs Amayaro Nigeria Limited, as well as the project consultant, Messrs Kanode and Associates Limited, for their commitment to ensuring timely and speedy completion of the project,” he said.
