The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has explained why President Muhammadu Buhari discarded Nigerian hospitals and decided to travel to the United Kingdom to seek medical attention.
He gave this explanation during a live radio programme titled, ‘Morning Crossfire’, on Nigeria Info, Abuja, 95.1FM, on Thursday.
During the phone-in programme, an angry caller had slammed the All Progressives Congress-led government for going back on its promise to bar public officials from travelling abroad for medical treatment at the expense of taxpayers.
In his reaction, however, Mohammed said, “My answer is very simple. Mr President is our father, he is the leader of the nation and I think he deserves the best in terms of medical treatment.”
