THE First Lady, Aish Buhari has thanked all Nigerians for their prayers and well wishes while she was away for medical treatment in the United Arab Emirates, UAE.

“I am well now and fully recovered and have since returned back home, Nigeria,” she said in a statement on Saturday, August 23, 2020.

She noted that the Nigerian Air force Flight encountered violent clear air turbulence on her way back, which was navigated safely and professionally by the Captain and crew of the Flight.

“I want to commend and appreciate the courage and professionalism of the Captain and his crew, the wonderful gallant servicemen and women of the entire Nigerian Air force for their dedication to duty and the quality of maintenance of its Fleet,” she said.

The First Lady recalled hosting the private healthcare Providers earlier in the year and “we had a very productive engagement where the issue of building the capacity of Nigeria health sector was the major focus, and funding was discovered to be the major challenge”.

She therefore called on the healthcare providers to take the advantage of the Federal Government’s initiative through the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, guidelines for the operation of NGN100 Billion Credit Support for the Healthcare sector as was released recently contained in a circular dated March 25, 2020 to the Commercial Banks.

“This will no doubt help in building and expanding the capacity of the Nigerian health sector and ultimately reduce medical trips and tourism outside the country.

“Once again, I thank our frontline workers and all Nigerians for their steadfastness as we navigate the challenges facing the entire world,” she added.
