Minister of Health Explains Why President Buhari Could Not be Treated in Nigeria



Prof. Isaac Folorunso Adewole ,Minister of Health has finally spoken about Pres. Buhari’s health.

In an interview with THISDAY he assured Nigerians that there is no cause for concern over President Muhammadu Buhari ’s health.

With regards to why the president could not be treated in Nigeria, he said that the president could not be treated in Nigeria because of the long existing bond between him and his foreign doctors, saying health was a complex issue.

“One thing we must realise is that health is a complex issue. There’s what we call patient-doctor relationship; there is also a bond between the patient and the doctor and these are things we can’t play with,

He added that “I used to have patients in Ibadan and they still call me, and say ‘we will like to see you’. Then I have to say no to them because I’m no longer available and ask, ‘why can’t you see somebody else?’ But many of them are reluctant to do so. That’s the complex thing about health.
