Medical Tourism: Buhari’s aide mock ‘wailers’
An aide to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie has mocked those criticising the president for travelling to the United Kingdom for medical checkup.
Reacting to critics on her Twitter handle @Laurestar, on Wednesday, she averred that wailing can’t take away the President’s rights to see his personal doctors.
The tweet reads:
“Next year, Pres. @MBuhari will go for a routine checkup.
“We have been here since 2016. Its been the same wailing. So the response will also be the same.
“At least, once a year, People across the world see their personal Doctors especially one they have seen for about 40 years.”
Lauretta noted that President Buhari won’t dump his doctor of about 40 years so that wailers can be happy. “That’s blackmail. Thankfully, he doesn’t pay black mailers,” she said.
“In 2016, I ran from one media house to the other, educating us on d psychology of the bond between a patient & his/her long-standing doctor.
“He went for CheckUp in 2017, 2018, 2019 & in 2020, just before the pandemic. Same wailing and same explanations.”
She added, “the fact remains that if @MBuhari chooses, he will go for checkups in 2022 & 2023. He will go in 2024. He will continue to go. Its his choice to go or not to.
“I don’t know any man who will accept a different barber to cut his hair if the one he is used to, is not available.
“Wailing can’t take away his rights to see his personal doctors so wailers must get ready for two more years of wailing and fooling around.”
