Former Governor of Akwa Ibom State and Senate Minority leader, Godswill Akpabio was at the world famous Ibom International Hospital for check up recently. Akpabio was criticized for travelling abroad last year for treatment after he had an accident in Abuja but he responded by saying, the mobilization of personnel at the hospital was not fully completed.
After completing his check up, he said;
“The days of flying outside Nigeria to Europe, America, India and other places of the world for medical attention are over. Those days are behind us now. Why would anyone think of flying abroad for medical treatment when the best is at your doorstep? I have confidence in this hospital that is why I have come to do my routine checkup here, and with the quality of medical personnel here, our people and visitors are surly saved. Let others talk about it, not me. I am just here like many others, for medical checkup. What I know is that this is the best Hospital in Africa” he said
