No One can Stop Buhari from Seeing his Doctor- Ngige

Says Buhari has been embarking on similar trips for over 40 years now.


The Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige, has said on Friday, April 2, that President Muhammadu Buhari has the right to travel abroad for medical consultation.

Ngige supposed this while reacting to the backlash that welcomed the President’s trip to London after he departed on Tuesday.


Nigerians had earlier expressed dissatisfaction over Buhari’s trip to London for a medical check-up, especially with the growing insecurity in the country, unrest, state of the health facilities in the country, and the nationwide strike embarked upon by members of the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD), alleging that the President’s trip is undue at this time, and that he is needed on ground to oversee the myriad of challenges facing the country.

Reacting to pressmen, the minister said Buhari has been visiting his doctor in London for a second opinion for over 40 years and cannot stop because he is now a President.

“I, as little as I am, I go abroad for a second opinion for my health, even though I don’t have any underlying disease. Buhari has every right to visit his doctors,” he said.
