Senator Ben Bruce has hailed ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo for believing in the medical sector in Nigeria after he recently had a medical checkup at Bayelsa Diagnostic Centre.
About the checkup, Obasanjo said, “I paid N350,000 (about $1000) for all my medical procedures at the Bayelsa Diagnostic Centre. I would have paid between $20,000 and $25,000 for the same quality of service in the USA”
The former president used the opportunity to encourage Nigerians to patronize local hospitals.
Concerning Obasanjo’s patronage of a local hospital, Ben Bruce tweeted as he shaded President Muhammadu Buhari who is currently about to take a 10-day leave to London:
‘I hear that London would soon have a visit from one of her most famous health tourists’.
‘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’
