FOREIGN MEDICAL TRIPS BY PUBLIC OFFICE HOLDERS; AN ACTIVIST SHARES HIS THOUGHTS ON FACEBOOK
Many Nigerians have expressed their dismay at President Muhammadu Buhari’s trip to London to treat a persistent ear infection. It came as a surprise to many who believed that PMB in living up to his “Spartan lifestyle” would not go on foreign medical trips at the expense of the country, especially after Billions of Naira was allocated to the State House Hospital.
Few months ago, Senator Godswill Akpabio traveled abroad to treat himself after an accident few months after commissioning a “World class hospital” in his state as governor!
Activist and writer, Modiu Olaguro shared his thoughts on this oxymoronic phenomenon.
“How come Ibrahim Babangida ruled Nigeria for eight years yet visits German hospitals? Why?
How come Bola Tinubu governed Lagos so good that he needed to transit overseas over a knee problem? Why?
What about Atiku Abubakar, he once injured his bone at the villa and had to go on a pilgrimage to the land of the slavemaster. Why?
Umaru Yar’dua would be mistaken for a part time governor of Katsina State and contract staff of the presidency due to his incessant medical pilgrimage. Why?
Goodluck Jonathan is regarded as a hero to many due to his unequalled transformation of Nigeria. Yet, we also saw him on few occasions on a white hospital chair. Why?
Muhammadu Buhari is also there to go get some solution to an ear infection. Why?
Just thinking o! Something is not adding up. Why travel over the red sea and blue ocean to go get services your supporters claimed you provided for them?
Don’t bite me please, I’ve not criticized your heroes. I was only thinking.
Please don’t bite me. Elias Ozikpu, please help beg them.. The sycophants are warming up to come bite me.”
