The Vice-President of the federal Republic of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo runs the affairs of the country whenever “Baba”, as President Muhammadu Buhari is fondly called, is out of the country. However, 90% of Nigerians have given kudos to the vice-president for the smooth running of the country. Nigerians must know that ruling a country is a very difficult task, especially when it is the GIANT OF AFRICA.

The questions on the lips of every Nigeria citizen and foreigner are, WHY DOES MR. PRESIDENT KEEP LEAVING HIS COUNTRY FOR MEDICAL TREATMENTS? CAN’T HE DO THAT IN HIS COUNTRY?

The president keeps living his country for another man’s country because the giant of Africa does not have the facilities and equipment to treat the president. Billions of dollars have been dispensed to the Ministry of health; unfortunately, there is nothing to show for it. The World Health Organization (W.H.O) has also given the country billions of dollars to solve health problems as well as purchasing facilities; it all turns into a waste. It is a big slap on Nigeria as a country if one hospital can’t treat our dear President. It clearly means Nigeria hospitals are not capable. Some will say, Nigeria will get there someday. This is the same thing we would keep saying when Nigeria is 100 years if care is not taken. Where is the money given to solve health issues in the country?

In conclusion, we all voted for change. The change starts from us all as citizens. If you are not in power and the words you utter are, “I will also embezzle money when I get there” that has to change because you came into this world with nothing and you will leave with nothing. Those in government should also know that they are there for a short period of time. They met people there and they will still for another person. We would all die one day. To our dear president, we at wish him a quick recovery.
