Aisha Buhari Condemns Foreign Medical Treatment

Aisha Buhari, Nigeria’s first lady, has condemned the practice of spending the nation’s resources abroad via medical tourism.

 She said she does not believe in Nigerians travelling abroad to receive treatment because “we have all it takes” for world-class medical services.

 According to Thecable, Aisha said this on Wednesday when she inaugurated Cedarcrest Hospital — where Yusuf, her son, was once treated — in Abuja.

 “I believe in making Nigeria a better place to be,” she said, adding: “I don’t believe in spending our resources abroad. We have all it takes to have a hospital like this, from manpower to personnel.” 

Aisha said her son “almost lost his life” but the hospital saved him.m“Even after he was flown abroad for further medical attention, they (hospitals and surgeons abroad) did not do anything for him,” she added.

 “They asked where the accident happened, where the surgery took place, I said Nigeria, they said excellent.”
