Nigerians Will Be Stopped From Going Abroad For Medical Treatment - Buhari Vowed

President Buhari on friday announced effort by the Federal Government to stop Nigerian Politicians from traveling abroad for medical treatment. 

The president who was represented by the minister of Science and technology at the inauguration of Alex Ekwueme Federal University Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State said the country will no longer condole the development which has become a recurring decimal among the political office holders simply because of the situation of the hospitals in the country. 

Buhari decried the medical trip abroad by mostly Nigerians, adding that it doesn't project the image of the country well at the global level and must be put to a stop.

According to him, “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.

Commenting on the completion of the gigantic project, Buhari said the emergence of the Teaching Hospital will further improve quality of lives and bring relief to the people of the state and the states in the south-east region. 

“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"
