Nigerian Presidents Won’t Travel Abroad For Treatment Anymore – Aisha Buhari

Wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari and First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria said; the incoming President, future ones and their family members will no longer seek medical treatment abroad because of the newly inaugurated N21bn Presidential Wing of the State House Medical Centre.

Mrs Buhari made this known when she joined the President Muhammadu Buhari and other dignitaries for the commissioning ceremony of the facility situated in the premises of Presidential Villa in Abuja on Friday

She said; “I’m quite happy, feeling fulfilled. Though we are leaving but all the same, we thank God the project has come to reality.

“I have opted for it six years now. I initiated this project six years ago when my husband spent three months abroad, consecutively, 90 days. And it shouldn’t be because we have all the experts in Nigeria. We only need a good platform.

“The hospital that is supposed to serve the First Family is serving like 35,000 people which is quite much. That’s why I insisted we should have a VIP Wing within the proximity of the presidential villa.”

She added, “Yes! This one is for the health and wellness of the First Family. They don’t need to go abroad now. They only need to maybe fly in experts to help our people. You know.

“So, no need for any leader to spend months and months abroad because of health care.”
