The Nigeria First Lady Aisha Buhari, has provided update on the health issues that led her to Dubai for treatment.
Aisha Buhari flown abroad for medical treatmnt, while she left for United Arab Emirate due to her persistent neck pain.
Aisha 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. this was said in a statement she signed and made available.
“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.”
She said that such will help in building and expanding Nigeria’s health sector capacity and ultimately reduce medical trips and tourism outside the country.
