Sick Govt Officials Must Be Treated In Nigeria, They Should Die Here — Falana

Femi Falana, a rights activist, has endorsed his call for equal treatment of all Nigerian government employees.

On Thursday at the first anniversary of the late Mohammed Fawehinmi Lecture in Lagos, the legal luminary reaffirmed his position.

Falana said that the nation required a law prohibiting all members of the public from traveling abroad for medical treatment.

“Anybody who holds public office must be treated in Nigeria for any health challenge.

“Public office holders must die here. Enough of health tourism”, NAN quoted him saying.

The lawyer hailed Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for undergoing knee surgery at a hospital in Lagos.

On the 2023 elections, Falana charged citizens to question presidential flagbearers on the nation’s problems.

He said the candidates should be asked to provide their solutions regarding the health and education sectors, insecurity, economy, among others.

“I don’t care which party you belong to; what is important is that people should ask questions and reject the high living conditions”, Falana added.
