The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar has said he may not rely on Nigeria’s healthcare system for his personal use if elected president.
Atiku explained that health facilities that cater for his health may not be available in Nigeria.
Speaking at the Arise TV Townhall debate, Atiku lamented that Nigeria’s healthcare system has limitations.
The former Vice President was asked if he would use Nigeria’s medical establishments as president to de-emphasise the use of foreign hospitals.
He said: “We have limitations; we know we have those limitations, health facilities that cater to my health may not be available.”
Atiku resides in Dubai, and only comes to Nigeria for important holidays and political activities.
