President Buhari Urges Nigerians to stop travelling for medical vacation Abroad


President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated that Nigerians should stop going overseas for medical treatment.

He said 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,” he said.

President Buhari, who himself had travelled to the United Kingdom for treatment on several occasions, stated this at the Alex Ekwueme Federal University Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, during the inauguration and handover of completed projects to the management of the hospital.

He explained that the project was executed to check flooding and gully erosion in the hospital.

The President, who was represented at the event by the Minister of Science and Technology, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, lamented the devastating effects of flooding in the South-East geo-political zone, saying the intervention project would bring relief to the hospital, the state and its neighbours.
