Former lawmaker, Shehu Sani, has stated that medical tourism can’t be banned without an enabling law.
He made the statement via his Twitter page on Thursday, April 1, two days after President Muhammadu Buhari flew to the United Kingdom for a routine medical check-up.
Sani, who represented Kaduna Central during the eighth National Assembly added that such a bill will face two deadly huddles.
Further, he said that the legislators go to Egypt, Dubai, or India for Checkups and The Executives who travel to Germany, the US, or UK for checkups.
This development is coming a day after Sani reacted to the statement by the presidency that it is not necessary for President Muhammadu Buhari to transmit power to his deputy, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
The presidency had earlier declared that it is unnecessary for Buhari to transmit power to Osinbajo before his latest medical trip to London.
The stance of the presidency on the issue was made known when Buhari’s media aide, Garba Shehu while appearing on a television programme on Tuesday, March 30.
