Health Minister Explains Why Buhari Did Not Go To Nigerian Hospital For Treatment

The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, has once again explained why President Muhammadu Buhari traveled overseas for treatment.





Adewole said the President opted for foreign treatment following the advice by his doctors.


The minister made this clarification while speaking with newsmen on the sidelines of the inauguration of Central Pharmacy Store and Maternity Building at the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital Complex , Ile Ife.

The decision by President Buhari to travel abroad for treatment has been greeted with nationwide criticisms.

Many faulted the President who has been advising citizens to patronize Nigerian products for ignoring local hospitals for a London hospital.

Reacting, however, Adewale said the President only followed the instruction of his personal doctors.


According to him, “I won’t describe it as a large volume but we still have people travelling abroad.

“One, it is a matter of choice and secondly, there is what is called bonding between a doctor and his patient irrespective of where the doctor is and that creates a problem, the patient may not want to see a new doctor.

“If a patient is seeing a particular doctor and that doctor is not around he may likely wait. You don’t want to be examined by a new doctor, you don’t want to start all over again. It is one of the reasons and you can’t take it away.

Adewole said, “The President is the best person to speak on this, he is our leader but also a private citizen. He is entitled to making a choice which will be influenced largely by the advice of his doctor.”

*......But he is THE PRESIDENT,he could have disobeyed his doctors orders and opted for Nigeria hospital na..lol

Odiegwu. We know his reasons naa. Our hospital is a death-trap. Simple

Shyla said...

I thought there was something called referrals or transfer of cases. So if his doctor had died withun the course of treating his sickness, he would not have been handed over to another.Biko Mr Minister, if you dont know what to say, its best you keep quiet. You dont have to say anything. Let us leave it as it is. You are just rubbishing the doctors here more and more.

Shame on you people!...
Vuharia is a hypocrite that is making life hard for Nigerians while him self and his family are enjoying!...
Wicked man!...

Opeyemi said...

The height of hypocrisy.

So the citizens deserve the ill-equipped and poor hospitals? Despite the huge amount of budget the healthcare sector gets annually.

Until heads start rolling, in every sector corruption will not move an inch.

This government is confused and clueless; always singing with its tongue in cheek.

If there is something i hate so much with everything in is lie and hypocrite. Am not perfect but i try as much as to real. Buhari is Evil, Hypocrite, pretender and a bloody liar. Is this an excuse, for someone that has the interest of his country at heart? He asked Nigerians to patronize made in Nigeria, while for ordinary ear infection he travels abroad for it and this idiotic of a man is here giving unnecessary excuses as why hypocrite went abroad for treatment while millions of naira has been budgeted in Aso villa clinic. It will never be with you all that is milking this country dry including your generations unborn.

Rubbish...that's how they'll block civil servants from overseas medical treatment and be questioning your source of funding like say them no dey pay you salary or that you were from the gutter before you got the job. Meanwhile #1 citizen will burn aviation fuel, carry all the aides & security (paying them DTAs & estacodes) just to treat ear infection in the abroad. Chiwetalu Agu's prophecy is true...ekwensu amanye Buhari aka na nti

Eastner said...

He traveled because he knows the deplorable state of our local hospitals.
People are dying everyday for reasons that are totally avoidable.
My heart still bleeds for Eric.He should never have died.

God Bless You, They wil tell you to bring NDLEA report that wil take up to a month and if you are not given the so called certificate that will be the end of your travel.

Can a house officer take care of mumuness?

N. Dr. Agwoturumbe said...

This is absolutely ridiculous. This Minister should be fired by the Senate. Why not build and equip hospitals that can treat whatever ailment he is suffering from?

Many Nigerians can benefit from the hospital. I am very upset. Infact, let me dispatch my Agbaras to deal with this fool

God will never have mercy on him & his generation. Amen.

Never knew there was a health minister until now. Why is it, Prof. Adewole has buried his head under the sand like an ostrich when it comes to the issue of safe delivery/ birthing for Naija women of child bearing ages? He can't pretend knowing about the inordinate numbers of young women dying in various operating rooms acroos the country from what is a safe and normal prodecure in many other countries. When is Adewole going to address this mounting problem instead of speaking on a non-issue of one man (PMB) versus the masses, like a retard? QED@atm
