He said Nigeria has the resources to make quality healthcare available to he citizens, The Nation also reported.

His words:

“The health care system in Nigeria requires very serious attention. It is unfortunate where we are. I don’t want to comment on people who are traveling for medical check. I have not travelled for the past two years.

“If we have all these things here why do we have to travel. We have all it takes to provide it. Why will I go out to do my check (overseas) when I have all the facilities in Government House?

“I don’t need it. Everything that is required for me to undergo any test is here. The resources we have it. Why can’t we provide it for our people?”

VAM News notes that Governor Wike’s comment comes a day after President Muhammadu Buhari travelled to London for a routine medical check-up.
