Garba Shehu who reacted to controversy surrounding the. Medical trip that President Buhari recently embark on, while in an interview on channel television, he said President Buhari has retained his doctors in the UK for over 30 years
He added that Buhari is wise and quite correct in his decision to consistently retain the set of doctors who have ensured good health for him.
“I think that, unfortunately, there is the misconception of the president’s trip, seen in the context of medical tourism.
“President Buhari is not a medical tourist — if somebody has kept retainership with medical experts; we are talking about 30 years and plus.
“Each year, they view you and examine you and give you a pass and advise you on what to do. Would you, given this position, be changing your doctors every other year, because there is a chance the distance will be shortened?
“I think the president is wise and quite correct in his decision that he retains consistently the set of doctors who have ensured good health for himself.”
