Nov 21, 2013 – Nigerian President Sick: Goodluck Jonathan In London For Medical Treatment / Check-up

The latest gist in town is that the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is very sick.

Sources claim he was airlifted to the United Kingdom few days ago for emergency medical treatment. This confirms why he was not at his 56th birthday party yesterday in  Aso rock, Abuja.

Due to his medical problem, he couldn’t have a meeting with investors in London yesterday rather he was under close supervision by medical doctors.

Though the nature of his illness has not been confirmed but Presidency sources claim it’s stress related.

President Jonathan’s health condition was confirmed by his Media spokesperson, Reuben Abati.

Read his official Press statement below:

  “In the course of his on-going visit to London for a meeting of Nigeria’s Honorary International Investors’ Council, President Goodluck Jonathan became indisposed and could not be present at the opening of the meeting today. President Jonathan has since been examined by competent medical practitioners. He has been advised to rest for a few days.

    The Presidency wishes to assure all Nigerians that President Jonathan’s condition is nothing serious and that the medical attention he has sought is only precautionary.”

To further clarify things, President Jonathan’s SA also talked about his medical condition on Twitter:

“President Jonathan undergoes medical check up in London. Became indisposed and has sought precautionary medical attention. Nothing serious”

Is Reuben Abati saying competent medical doctors are nowhere to be found in Nigeria?

      May God grant him quick recovery. However, it is a shame If our president who is a phd holder and receives his doctorate in Nigeria is not proud enough to receive medical treatment in his own country. How many Americans or Indians have come to Nigeria to receive medical treatment? This action of our dear president should trigger a clarion call for all Nigerians. Everyone deserves an access to a qualitative health care, which should be administered no where except Nigeria. Additionally, Nigerian medical practitioners also have a lot to do in bringing credibility in the mind of Nigerians that they are competent in their area of expertise.

    @professor I.D, the likes of you are the very problem we have in this country, what is wrong if we have sound medical system in Nigeria? medical treatment abroad! are those hospital not own by countries? with all the looting going on under GEJ the proceeds are more than enough to build world class hospital here, if he has the fear of God he would have listen to the cry of the poor masses who are dying in their thousands.well for me i have never wish even my enemy dead but i will wish him what he wish the masses. And if it is in his capacity to reduce the sufferings and deaths of Nigerians and refused to act, it will never be well with him UNLESS he change and do the right thing now that he has the time and opportunity.
    For instance the Aviation scandal, for the fear of GEJ neither the SSS nor the police could act, according to one SSS official,It said through his body language you can tell that the case is no go area, otherwise why set up panel? look at Faruk Lawan and Otedola and the most recent revelation between the NNPC and swiss Oil dealers.
    And for those of us who sell our vote and conscience for money and some that are paid to come here and make unless and sentimental contribution we contributed to this problem. WE all must change and play our part to save our dear Nation Nigeria. GOD BLESS NIGERIA AND SEND US A LEADER NOT A RULER, AMEN.

    @Naijagist listen to ur comment, if pr Gej has invested more in our healthcare sector would he have to travel abroad for medical treatment? Blame the North 39yrs=9 President, not Gej a room is not build in a day Gej is the anointed.

    @gentle face the truth and do away with sentiments, when will GEJ do any meaningful thing since he has devoted all his time, energy and our resources to 2015, I hate it when people like you shy away from real truth. with the way corruption has taken over the country give GEJ 50 more years nothing will still happen except that there will be no cash money to loot.
