The president’s wife told State House correspondents that she established the idea of the wing six years ago, after the extensive stay of her husband abroad, for medical treatment.
She assured that with the facility in place, Nigerian Presidents and their family members will no longer need to go abroad for treatment but may only fly medical experts to assist their colleagues in the country.
