The People Democratic Party (PDP) has said the refusal of the president to address the strike action taken by the health workers is a clear manifestation of insensitivity to the plight of Nigerians. The party lamented the hardship and anguish of hundreds of Nigerians who are abandoned and dying by the day in public hospitals saying this act shows the level of concern the president have toward importance issues that concern average Nigerians. A statement by the National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan asked, “Is it not the height of insensitivity that while Nigerians in dire need of medical attention are languishing, President Buhari abandoned them without any form of intervention and embarked on medical tourism in London with our common patrimony?” “AS if that wasn’t enough, upon his return to Nigeria, instead of summoning an emergency meeting of critical stakeholders to find solution to the problem, Mr. President abandoned the striking health workers and chose to organize and attend political rally in Jigawa State for a doomed 2019 re-election bid. Such aloofness by the government is directly responsible for the escalation of killings and bloodletting in Benue, Taraba, Adamawa, Plateau, Kogi, Zamfara, Borno, Yobe, Kaduna States and other parts of the country.
