‘Nigerians deserve best health care’ – Aisha Yesufu reacts to Buhari’s medical trip to london
Aisha Yesufu, the co-convener of BringBackOurGirls, BBOG, advocacy group has condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s trip to United Kingdom on doctor’s request.
Presidential Spokesman, Garba Shehu, had on Monday disclosed that Buhari will leave this Tuesday for a four-day trip based on his doctors request.
Reacting, the activist called the president’s attention to the degrading nature of public hospitals in the country.
Aisha on her Twitter page urged Buhari to be a good leader and provide the best healthcare for Nigerians in the world instead of travelling abroad for medicals.
She wrote, “No one begrudge the President access to best healthcare the world has to offer. Some of us begrudge the President having that access and not ensuring citizens he is supposed to lead have that access.
“Would it be a bad thing for Nigeria to have the best healthcare in the world?
“The hallmark of a true leader is COMPASSION! A leader should want better for those he or she leads. Want them to have access to the things he or she has access to and even more. Public hospitals have been comatose for a while now due to strikes.”
