Aisha Buhari Wants Medical Tourism Reduced After Returning From UAE

Aisha Buhari Dubai OnoBello (1)Aisha Buhari, the wife of the President Muhammadu Buhari has returned from her exclusive medical trip to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

Recall that she had travelled out of the country in the first week of August following a severe neck pain, according to The Punch.

The First Lady disclosed her return in an Instagram post shortly landing in Abuja, the nation’s capital on Saturday August 22. Mrs Buhari who returned on a Presidential jet, said they witnessed a turbulence but the pilots were able to weather the storm.

Also while drumming support for Nigeria’s health care sector, she called on private health personnel to take advantage of the N100bn fund being disbursed by the Central Bank of Nigeria. According to her, it would help in reviving the health sector and reducing medical tourism.

She wrote: “I want to use this opportunity to thank all Nigerians for their prayers and well wishes while I was away for medical treatment . I am well now and fully recovered and had since returned back home, Nigeria.

On our way back, the Nigerian Airforce Flight encountered a violent clear air turbulence which was navigated safely and professionally by the Captain and crew of the Flight.

I want to commend and appreciate the courage and professionalism of the Captain and his crew, the wonderful gallant service men and women of the entire Nigerian Airforce for their dedication to duty and the quality of maintainance of its Fleet.

I recall hosting the private healthcare Providers earlier in the year and we had a very productive engagement where the issue of building the capacity of Nigeria health sector was the major focus, and funding was discovered to be the major challenge.

I therefore call on the healthcare providers to take the advantage of the Federal Government’s initiative through the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) guidelines for the operation of NGN100 Billion Credit Support for the Healthcare Sector as was released recently contained in a circular dated March 25, 2020 to the Commercial Banks.

This will no doubt help in building and expanding the capacity of the Nigerian health sector and ultimately reduce medical trips and tourism outside the Country.

Once again, I thank our frontline workers, and all Nigerians for their steadfast as we navigate the challenges facing the entire world.

Aisha Muhammadu Buhari
First Lady, Federal Republic of Nigeria
August 22, 2020″
