Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has lauded Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for using a Nigerian hospital for his knee surgery.
Obi hailed Osinbajo in a tweet for “following through the medical rehabilitation process in Nigeria”.
Osinbajo had undergone a knee injury on account of a fracture of his right femur (thigh bone) at the Duchess International Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos.
The former Anambra State governor further described the use of Nigerian hospitals by Osinbajo as exemplary leadership in restoring the confidence of Nigerians in our health care system.
He tweeted, “My prayers & thoughts are with my dear elder brother, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, as he is discharged from the hospital after his successful surgical operation. I sincerely wish him quick and full recovery.
“His choice of following through the medical rehabilitation process in Nigeria is commendable. As Nigerian leaders, we must restore confidence in our heathcare delivery institutions by patronising and investing robustly in them.”
