The minister of state for health, Dr Osagie Ehanire has frowned at Nigerians who seek medical attention abroad.

Minister of state for health, Dr Osagie Ehanire

According to The Guardian, Dr Ehanire described the act as unpatriotic.

He therefore urged Nigerians to stay in the country and take advantage of the improved health services at the nation’s medical centres.

The minister made the comment after inspecting the Federal Medical Centre in Asaba, Delta state on Saturday, February 25.

He lamented that Nigerians who travel abroad in droves to seek medical attention for their ailments, spend so much money in hard currency.

His words: “We need to provide money for our hospitals to upgrade their facilities to discourage people from travelling abroad for medical tourism. We believe if we can offer more services, people will be less inclined to travel abroad for medical treatment.”

A journalist then asked the minister: “But sir, talking about medical tourism, the president has been away in the United Kingdom for medical treatment for over a month.

“That is medical tourism. Don’t you think this is hypocrisy? People should practise what they preach. Charity, they say, begins at home.”

But the minister bluntly refused to answer the and instead moved on to another journalist.

“Next! Your question please!” he said, pointing to another reporter on the side-lines.

Recall that the personal assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on new media, Bashir Ahmad was aubjected to criticisms on a similar issue recently.

Bashir had advised Nigerians to patronise Made-in-Nigeria goods, an advice that didn’t go down well with some of his followers because of the president’s medical vacation.

When we stop going to overseas for everything, start patronizing only this may not be far from possible. Govt can do it alone https://twitter.com/toyino1/status/835019433819111425 

@BashirAhmaad this will include going overseas for medical treatment and health services in presume.

@BashirAhmaad the president should have led by example by taking treatment in Nigeria. Don’t ask Nigerians to do what the presidency is not

  • President Buhari has been in London since January 19. The presidency had first announced that he was there for a 10-day leave. But he has since extended the leave on medical grounds.
