President Jonathan undergoes medical check up in London

Presidential spokesperson Reuben Abati has announced that the president is currently undergoing medical check up in the UK but says it's nothing serious. See the State House press release 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.
Reuben Abati, Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity) November 21, 2013

Anonymous said...

I hear u, Mr Abati, but if it is nothing serious, why not do the medical check in Nigeria? Why abroad? Oh! It escaped my mind that in Nigeria, our hospitals are not adequately equipped to cater for our Presidential medical checks.

Do you know how disgraceful that is for a Nigerian president to seek medical attention in the UK! I was brought in the UK, I'm always shouting from the rooftop - proud to be Nigerian. Now this.

This isn't something you should announce or be proud of.

I like the fact that he was truthful about it.However,it is hightime something is done about our health sector because,less than 20% can afford qualitative medical treatment abroad.

Isn't it funny how nearly every Nigerian President since this democratic dispensation began,has gone to the UK for medical check up?
Isn't it time they developed the healthcare services in Nigeria?
For how long will Public office holders keep traveling abroad for mere check ups when there are hospitals in Nigeria that can be developed to meet the UK standard?
Aren't there Nigerian doctors with enough medical expertise to carry out these "check ups"?
Good health to Mr. President.

What a great country. Lead by these babalawo leaders . See how they shamelessly proclaim to the world , how backward Nigeria is, it doesn't have medical facilities for the president to trust in. So what do common man do!. They are left to the mercy of the substandard health care system. It's just sick . What level of common seance is needed for a leader of a country to decide to invest in at least 2 good hospitals in the country. If not for any thing but to save embarrassment .

Further confirmation to the world that they can't even provide proper health facilities in Nigeria. What will it cost to run a state of the art hospital in Nigeria? Members of his cabinet are busy approving and taking possession of overpriced armoured vehicles whereas they can't even save themselves when they fall sick inside the said cars... Its just apalling that a country claiming to be the giant of Africa can not even check its public officers. God help Nigeria.

I pray the enemy of this useless president has not been able to give this useless president , ARAFAT TREATMENT.

The medical team in UK better start looking for evidence of radioactive materials on this man before this man expire.

I don't trust the enemies of this president , especially the ' BORN-TO-RULE-AND-LOOT northerners. They are likely to do anything to get power back because they know without power, they are doomed.

I think it was plutonium that was used to kill ARAFAT.
Putin also uses it to take care of his enemies even inside BRITAIN.
I don't know wether it has antidote though.

All hand should be on deck to save Jonathan, maybe if he survive this, he will wake up and start doing the right things for us. Who knows.

Why are some die hard Jonathan supporters trying to lie here.
Reuben Abati wrote that Jonathan went for medical check up. That was what he wrote. He did not write that Jonathan went for a seminar and fell ill during the seminar.
Jonathan went for a check up abroad and was found not to be alright and was advised to rest. This is what Abati wrote.

I am not surprised..given how cold the weather is currently in London. It could be a massive shock for anyone coming from the tropics...However the comments here from Nigerians reeks of classlessness and inability to articulate. Much as most are very touchy about the bad governance that Nigerians have endured over the past 50years, there should be a clear line between mediocrity and rational reasoning.

Most teaching hospitals are falling apart today cos Dr are running dem with their egostical life-style
U all shld leave GEJ alone 4 once & look 4 oda people in d ministry of health to blame, that's Y dere are ministers in different parastatals, GEJ can't do d work alone
For d person calling on NMA, pls y'all shld take several seats abeg
D Drs we have in this country are mostly jokers, they don't care if u don't have the money

For the second time, while attending and representing Nigeria at an International event, President Goodluck Jonathan has missed the opportunity to do what he went there to do. The first time, the infantile excuse was that he decided to miss the main event and hold a small meeting, with some inconsequential attendees to discuss matters that were not on the main schedule. Issokay, lets pretend we all fell for that and did not hear the rumours that his actual meeting was with Mr Jim Bean, Mr Johnnie Walker ably assisted by Mr Dom Perignon. Now, again, he fails to represent us, a day after celebrating his birthday through the wee hours of the night.....Hmmm, shouldn't we all cut to the chase and to quote Jamie Foxx....

Before throwing shades at the president, you guys should read the exact content of the story. It clearly states that he became 'indisposed in the course of attending a meeting in London'. In other words,the medical check up wasn't the initial intent of his visit to London. Nigerian's should stop being too quick to judge for crying out loud!!!

All of u criticizing Jonathan are illiterates and lack simple reading comprehension. He travelled to UK for a business meeting and fell ill there, so wud He had boarded his plane back to Naija and see a doctor then jump back into the plane to Uk again to conclude the meeting when He wud simply had walked into a Hospital there get checked and get back to the meeting. Am not a fan of any politician, but if we must criticize then let's do it constructively not just for the sake of criticism. He has done nothing wrong pls, he didn't go to Uk for medical check up. Use ur brains f**ls

Many commentators here are morons and i wish them bad luck and sickness all the life time..They can't read the press statement but quick to abuse the president.
GEJ did not go to London for medical check up but for investment forum.He was about to see over 5,000 investors but suddenly fail sick..Please LINDA educate your readers.

The president’s spokesman, Reuben Abati, said President Jonathan fell ill while in London and had sought medical attention.
“He has been advised to rest for a few days.” Mr. Abati said.

And some idiots are here talking rubbish as if they have putted their house in order..Your papa or mama has never fail sick on his her travel? All those olodo on this forum should read well before putting down their comments.

Hey guys easy on the President, he was on an official duty to London when the Sickness caught up with him, its not like he purposely went for a checkup, even though it might be possible but not in this context, so save your curses for when he actually travels for only checkup, Haba Naija Pple make una pity Presido, he just finished his birthday and probably over ate

Hi Linda, am new on your blog and I really love what u r doing. I ve taken time to read d comments on Mr president's check up in London.
I am a doctor in Nigeria, but on course USA, I can tell u THREE BIG reasons why Nigerians go abroad for medical help. one is our unequipped hospitals, health policies and the way we doctors practice in Nija. if u allow me, I will be posting comments to explain these 3 points. 2 yrs ago I wanted to resign from my organization bcos I was humiliated just bcos of the ways I practiced medicine, I continued that way though, now within 2013 alone, I have worn five Awards for same reasons. Thank you.

Those of you defending him are the dull ones. So you really believe he fell ill while in London? I am not stupid enough to believe that story. He was sick before he left Nigeria and had this medical check up pre planned. Gullible people
