Lead by example, PDP tells Buhari on medical tourism

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lampoon President Muhammadu Buhari’s on his recent comment against medical tourism describing the president’s stance as self indictment and deceitful.
The PDP in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said President Buhari is allegedly leading other Nigerians seeking medical tourism and that he remains top on “the medal table” as far medical treatment abroad is concern.
The PDP said President Buhari should by example by patronising public institutions in the country, so that he can experience the reality as regards healthcare in the country, adding that, “Our party describes as ridiculous, a situation where a President, who patronizes foreign hospitals for treatment and even check-ups; whose administration has failed to provide adequate healthcare in his country, could turn around to pontificate to other citizens against foreign treatment.
“While the PDP do not approve of proliferated foreign medical tourism, especially by leaders and public office holders, our party holds that a leader who has failed to lead by example and whose government has neglected and wrecked our healthcare systems, lacks all rectitude to issue directives against foreign treatment.
“Mr President can then discover that our health system has suffered untold neglect under his watch, leading to dilapidated infrastructure, empty drug shelves, decrepit and worn-out equipment, brain drain and a demoralized workforce worse than his 1983 recollections,” it stated.
