    This medical tourism is expanding its coast to foreign African ruler visiting PMB in London & now OBJ has join the band wagon & it’s another season 3 & 4 of photo shop. Another visitation by PDP governors to PMB, this is just to waste billions of naira on an unwarranted & useless visit which will never better the lives of the ordinary Nigerians who are suffering courtesy of recession, come to think of it the electorates put PMB there in London to rule over Nigeria & not those visiting him. Abeg how much will it cost the presidency for the president to speak to Nigerians on a 30 seconds video & air it on NTA & other national TV & not the foreign media, for Nigerians to see that their president is hail & healthy & not all these visitations & photo shop. The next thing we will hear is that the National Assembly, all first Ladies, Ministers, Traditional rulers, Local govt Chairmen & Councillors etc all these people will be bill to visit Mr president simultaneously.
    I rest my case
    God bless my country Nigeria
