Nigerians attack Aisha over call for better hospitals
Written by admin on August 23, 2020
Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari, yesterday, returned from medical treatment in the United Arab Emirates, calling for improved hospitals in the country.
But many Nigerians on social media are furious over her demand, accusing her of being insensitive.
Some of them also described her demand as “shameful and insulting”.
According to reports, the President’s wife had travelled out of the country in the first week of August following a severe neck pain.
On her return, she had asked healthcare providers to take advantage of the Federal Government’s N100bn credit support for the health sector, saying that “will no doubt help in building and expanding the capacity of the Nigerian health sector and ultimately reduce medical trips and tourism outside the country.”
Reacting to the First Lady’s comment, one Bulama Bukarti on Twitter said, “Your husband spent huge money on the Villa clinic, yet it couldn’t treat ‘neck pain’
TheRoy @BarrROUN1990 said “Aisha Buhari is simply mocking Nigerians by calling for better hospitals in Nigeria when she knows that her husband is the president and the one who should give us the ‘better hospitals’. The president and family members are simply being most unfair to Nigerians,”
