The First Lady of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari, has made more clarification on the health problem that led to her traveling to the United Arab Emirates for medical treatment.
The President’s wife in a statement she personally signed and made available on Saturday night, said, “I want to use this opportunity to thank all Nigerians for their prayers and well wishes while I was away for medical treatment in the United Arabs Emirates (UAE). I am well now and fully recovered and have since returned back home, Nigeria.
“I recall hosting the private healthcare providers earlier in the year and we had a very productive engagement where the issue of building the capacity of Nigeria health sector was the major focus, and funding was discovered to be the major challenge.
“I therefore call on the healthcare providers to take the advantage of the Federal Government’s initiative through the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) guidelines for the operation of NGN100 Billion Credit Support for the Healthcare Sector as was released recently contained in a circular dated March 25, 2020 to the Commercial Banks.”
The First Lady made it clear that such will help in building and expanding Nigeria’s health sector capacity and “ultimately reduce medical trips and tourism outside the Country.”
Aisha also appreciated the frontline workers and Nigerians for remaining steadfast as the country navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
On her return to Nigeria, Aisha has through a series of tweets on Saturday night commended the crew of the Air force flight for the courage in managing the dangerous movement.
