As many Nigerians continue to express bitterness over the recent trip of President Muhammadu Buhari to London for routine medical checkup, the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has appeared not to be left out of those who are not comfortable with the action of Mr. President to leave Nigeria for a medical checkup in London.
Recall that in early of hours of this week, the Presidency through Shehu Garba and Femi Adesina announced via social media that the president would be leaving the country for routine medical checkup, by that notice, the President left the country for London on Tuesday being the 30th of March 2021.
Since the president left the country, many people have been expressing dissatisfaction over that, the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has spoken regarding the trip of the President to London hours after the President finally left the country.
As per the report obtain from the source of Nation News, the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has claimed that if he ever become the president of this nation, he will never travel to another country for any medical checkup or treatment as he will make sure that every equipments needed for his medical checkup and treatment are made available in his state.
The Governor who was trying to mock Buhari said, he will never travel abroad for medical checkup as all facilities and equipments that he will need for any medical examination and treatment are readily available in his State which is Rivers State.
Governor Wike posed a question before everyone, he said; “why would one leave the country when all needed medical equipment are provided by the state and federal government.” He went further to say; “I don’t need it, everything that is needed for me to have any medical checkup is here. We have the resources, then why can’t we provide it for the people? It is unfortunate that we have to travel to another country. “
What is actually expected of the President is to make sure that the care, protection, safety and healthy life of all Citizens work efficiently and productively. Perhaps, what we have seen from the president now is an indication of failure in that angle of health care.
What is your opinion on this, do you think the President really needs to go abroad for treatment if Nigeria health sector is well equipped?
