The Nigerian Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, has denied ever travelling abroad for medical treatment in a recent interview on Channels TV.
Oshiomhole cited an instance.
“When you travel. If you request for a visa to EU countries, they will ask you if you have a health insurance cover in case you fall ill. It’s not as if you’ve fixed your calendar to fall ill or otherwise.”
“The point I was making was that it was clearly unfair to talk like hypocrites while even the doctors travel abroad.
As a Governor, I have and I’m sure they would be in the records of the Edo state government, many references by Nigerian doctors from both state-owned hospital or federal government-owned hospitals, suggesting that patients be referred to some hospitals abroad,” He added.
