Don Jazzy, Rema decry Nigeria’s healthcare system
Mavin Records chief executive and ace music producer, Michael Collins Ajereh, better known as Don Jazzy, has slammed Nigerian leaders over their inability to travel abroad for medical treatment as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
According to Don Baba J, as he is also called, the present situation has forced everyone to make do with the available health facilities in the country. “Build hospital you’ll not hear. Now you can not go abroad,” he wrote in a mixture of pidgin and English on Twitter, while expressing his opinion on the pandemic.
In a similar vein, fast-rising music star, Divine Ikubor, known professionally as Rema, also lambasted the politicians, saying they will enjoy ‘karma’ of the bad healthcare system.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote: “They refused to invest in hospitals because they could fly abroad to get treatments for themselves, now countries borders closed, Karma take the wheel.”
He noted that the Nigerian political leaders are lax towards the healthcare systems because they had the luxury of traveling out of the country for quality healthcare. He added that as the coronavirus pandemic continues to sweep across the country, the ruling and political class have been more infected than the ordinary citizens
With the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, Bauchi State Governor, Bala Muhammed, and more politicians continue to battle with the virus, many Nigerians have seen the development as vindication after years of neglect and degradation that has hit the Nigerian healthcare system.
