President Muhammadu Buhari’s special assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onichie, has said wailers should get ready to wail till 2023 as Buhari will keep embarking on medical trip.
The President’s aide said this on Wednesday on her verified twitter handle @Laurestar.
She stated that Buhari has the right to see his personal doctors whenever he feels like.
Onichie made this remarks, reacting to the criticisms and protests against president Buhari’s medical trip to London while Nigerian doctors are currently on strike.
A fresh protest organised by Revolution Now convener, Omoyele Sowore, has been scheduled for today in London to force Buhari to go have his medical checkup in Nigeria.
Onochie in her tweet, noted that no amount of wailing can stop Buhari from embarking on medical trips which he has been doing for years.
She stated, “Next year, Pres. @MBuhari will go for a routine checkup
“We have been here since 2016. It’s been the same wailing. So the response will also be the same.
“At least, once a year, people across the world see their personal doctors especially one they have seen for about 40 years.
“@MBuhari won’t dump his doctor of about 40 years so that wailers can be happy. That’s blackmail. Thankfully, he doesn’t pay blackmailers.
“In 2016, I ran from one media house to the other, educating us on the psychology of the bond between a patient & his/her long-standing doctor
“He went for #CheckUp in 2017, 2018, 2019 & in 2020, just before the pandemic. Same wailing and same explanations.
“The fact remains that if @MBuhari chooses, he will go for checkups in 2022 & 2023. He will continue to go. It’s his choice to go or not to.
“I don’t know any man who will accept a different barber to cut his hair if the one he is used to, is not available.
“Wailing can’t take away his rights to see his personal doctors so wailers must get ready for two more years of wailing and fooling around. God bless Nigeria.”
