Senator Lanre Tejuoso representing Ogun Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly has blamed the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the deteriorated health sector, saying it was the reason President Muhammadu Buhari had to seek medical help abroad for his ear infection.
Senator Lanre who is also the Chairman, Senate Committee on Health stated that the PDP administrations in the past 16 years destroyed the health care system.
He made this disclosure in Abeokuta during his empowerment programme where he distributed many items including cars to the people of his constituency.
He said: “Do you know the party of the President? It’s All Progressives Congress. Do you know the party that ruled for 16 years? It is PDP. We have just taken over. We inherited a rotten health sector; our budget is just about to start.
“So we are still suffering from the PDP structure. If in one year’s time the president should go to UK for health, then you talk about why he is going.
“In medicine, there is what they call second opinion. The President did not leave the day he was sick. He was in Nigeria for days, he was seeing our Nigerian doctors and after that, there was no improvement, he went for what we call second opinion to confirm whatever it is that is the problem. And thank God he’s back hale and hearty”.
