I Have No Intentions Of Using Nigerian Hospitals—Abubakar Atiku
Speak of politicians who have no sense of loyalty to their country, and you certainly do not have to look farther than the Nigerian crop of Politicians, and as the 2023 general elections draw closer, opportunity presents Nigerians to see a host of characters coming to the table of leadership; Abubakar Atiku of the PDP is no stranger to Nigerians.
Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, has stated that if elected president might not rely on Nigeria’s healthcare system for his own use.
According to Atiku Abubakar, Nigeria may not have any healthcare facilities that can meet his needs.
Atiku bemoaned the shortcomings of Nigeria’s healthcare system at the Arise TV Townhall debate.
When asked if he would de-emphasize the usage of foreign hospitals as president, the former vice president said that he would use Nigeria’s medical facilities.
“We have limitations; we know we have those limitations, health facilities that cater to my health may not be available.”
The Nigerian presidential hopeful, Abubakar Atiku of course is based according to reports a resident of Dubai who only travels to Nigeria for significant occasions and political events.
This raises the question to Nigeria’s electorates concerning its choice of representative in the coming February polls—a President that is openly ashamed of the country’s infrastructure and admittedly would rather prefer to ignore it, or an absentee leader who is based ironically in another foreign country?
However Atiku Abubakar should be lauded for his sincerity as he shows to Nigerians his true intent on Nigeria’s health sector.
