The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, has once again explained why President Muhammadu Buhari traveled overseas for treatment.

Adewole said the President opted for foreign treatment following the advice by his doctors.

The minister made this clarification while speaking with newsmen on the sidelines of the inauguration of Central Pharmacy Store and Maternity Building at the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital Complex , Ile Ife.

The decision by President Buhari to travel abroad for treatment has been greeted with nationwide criticisms.

Many faulted the President who has been advising citizens to patronize Nigerian products for ignoring local hospitals for a London hospital.

Reacting, however, Adewale said the President only followed the instruction of his personal doctors.
