Osinbajo reportedly disclosed this in Lagos where he commissioned the Duchess International Hospital, a new facility under the Reddington Hospitals group.
Osinbajo stated, “We have all it takes to become the place of choice for even medical tourists from developed countries looking to jump long queues for specialised procedures at home or simply shopping for more affordable fees for first-class healthcare.”
He reportedly disclosed, “We have by far the largest number of middle- to low-income communities and individuals in sub–Saharan Africa who require affordable, high-quality healthcare.”
Osinbajo added, “The establishment of such facilities would not only further provide more Nigerians with excellent healthcare solutions, but it would also open more opportunities to the country’s high-quality medical personnel.”
He noted, “With investments like this seeking high-quality medical personnel, we can even reverse the trend of doctors voting with their feet.”
While commissioning the hospital, the Vice President testified, “This hospital has bragging rights. It comes from the Reddington family, a clinical health brand that has earned a strong reputation for high standards in healthcare, top-notch personnel, including many highly reputed Nigerian doctors in diaspora and best of all, it is all Nigerian.”
