Ben Bruce Chides Buhari On Foreign Medical Trips
The Senator representing Bayelsa East in the upper chamber of the National Assembly, Ben Murray-Bruce, has tackled President Buhari for his frequent foreign medical trips abroad.
The Senator, in a veiled tweet on his Twitter account, also blamed the Buhari administration for discouraging tourists and investors from coming into the country.
A few days ago I was with President Obasanjo in Bayelsa where he went for his medical check up. That is a leader who believes in Nigeria. That is a leader who loves Nigeria. Meanwhile, I hear that London would soon have a visit from one of her most famous health tourists.

How, for instance, can we ask foreign tourists to come and holiday in Nigeria if our own leaders constantly only go abroad for their own holidays where they move about freely but at home, they move about with small armies? We can’t grow if leaders constantly go abroad for holiday

As earlier reported by Naija News, President Buhari begins his 10-day vacation to the United Kingdom today where he is also expected to see his doctors.
