Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said the reason for President Muhammadu Buhari’s treatment in London is that he deserves the best treatment.
Mohammed explained in a radio interview on Thursday, June 1, 2017 that London medical practitioners and hospitals can offer Buhari the best treatment which he deserves as the President of Nigeria.
“My answer is very simple. Mr President is our father, he is the leader of the nation and I think he deserves the best in terms of medical treatment,” the minister said while responding to a caller that criticised the President for getting medical treatments abroad when he barred public officials for doing same.
Mohammed was a guest at a live radio programme, ‘Morning Crossfire’ on Nigeria Info 95.1FM.
The minister had earlier said there is no cause for alarm over President Muhammadu Buhari’s health saying he is in very competent hands in London.
President Buhari departed on May 7, 2017, for an indefinite medical vacation to London after months of ill health.
First Lady, Aisha Buhari also joined her husband in London on Tuesday, May 30.
