Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment, said President Muhammadu Buhari has the right to travel abroad for medical consultation while reacting to the backlash that welcomed the President’s trip to London on Thursday.
Ngige on Friday told Channels TV that Buhari has been visiting his doctor in London for a second opinion for over 40 years and cannot stop because he is now a President.
“The President has been going to his doctor for second opinion in the UK for the past forty-something years. Because he is now President of Nigeria, you don’t want him to go?
“I, as little as I am, I go abroad for second opinion for my health, even though I don’t have any underlying disease.
“Buhari has every right to visit his doctors,” he added.
