Why Buhari Chose UK Ahead Of Nigerian Hospitals — Lai Muhammad


.

.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has given reasons why Pres. Buhari shunned Nigerian hospitals and decided to travel to the U.K to seek medical attention, Punchng reports.

.

.

Mohammed spoke during a live radio programme titled, ‘Morning Crossfire’, on Nigeria Info Abuja 95.1FM, on Thursday.

.

.

An angry caller had criticised 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.”

.

.

Responding to another question on why the Buhari government was flouting court orders regarding the release of some detained politically exposed persons, Mohammed said, “If it is a court order and the order is not appealed, then you have flouted the order.

.

.

“But if the order is appealed, then it is not a final order. Also, you have to balance national security with the rule of law. In the case of Ifeanyi Ubah, I think it is neither here nor there.”
