Renowned Legal practitioner and human right advocate, Mr. Femi Falana, SAN has criticized the continual medical trips of President Muhammadu Buhari to the United Kingdom (UK) as a shame of a nation because of the inability of the government to revamp the health sector with the view to providing good hospitals in Nigeria.
Speaking this morning on Channels Television, Mr. Falana who said he sympathizes with Buhari over his health and wishes him quick recovery however blamed the government for neglecting the health sector. He said, “The frequent trip of the President and indeed rich Nigerians ridicules our nation before the international community. It is sad that the government cannot build good hospitals where ordinary Nigerians can be treated for basic health challenges.”
Falana said it was because of this utter neglect for the health sector in Nigeria and the penchant for government officials to run abroad to treat themselves with public funds that he sometimes ago attempted to get a court injunction stopping Nigerians public officials from going abroad for medical treatment.
