Aisha Buhari Survives Aircraft Turbulence, Wants Medical Tourism Reduced
The wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, has returned from Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where she went to treat severe neck pain.
Mrs. Buhari, who returned in a Presidential jet, said they witnessed turbulence but the pilots were able to weather the storm.
The President’s wife said this in an Instagram post shortly after she returned on Saturday.
She wrote, “I want to use this opportunity to thank all Nigerians for their prayers and well wishes while I was away for medical treatment. I am now well and fully recovered and had since returned back home, Nigeria.
The President’s wife, while drumming support for the health care sector, called on private health personnel to take advantage of the N100bn fund being disbursed by the Central Bank of Nigeria.
She said this will help in reviving the health sector and reducing medical tourism.
Mrs. Buhari concluded in a statement that “This will be no doubt help in building and expanding the capacity of the Nigerian health sector and ultimately reduce medical trips and tourism outside the country. Once again, I thank our frontline workers and all Nigerians for their steadfastness as we navigate the challenges facing the entire world”.
