In the news again. Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe said on Wednesday that President Muhammadu Buhari’s medical trip to the United Kingdom suggests that the APC government does not stay true to its words.
Abaribe who noted that Buhari’s medical trip did not contravene the law, however, stated that the exercise breached a moral contract, one that was set by the president himself.
“I don’t think he has done anything wrong in the eyes of the law, he has a right to seek or take care of himself medically; I think morally is where he has done everything wrong.
“This was a president that told us he will never go on any medical check-up or trip abroad and actually condemned the huge amount of money spent on medical movement outside before he was elected in 2015 and shortly after he lived more abroad than in Nigeria.
“So when the COVID business started, we were assured that medical facilities in Nigeria will be upgraded and that there will be no need for so much of our monies being spent abroad.
“We are just surprised that nothing has changed he is still depending on foreign facilities than in Nigeria,” the lawmaker remarked.
