- Aisha, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari has criticised the management of Aso Rock Clinic
- She accused the clinic of redundancy and inefficiency despite having a budget of N3 billion
- The wife of the president also accused the clinic of lacking basic tools like syringe
Aisha Buhari, wife of Nigeria's president has called for the probe of Aso Rock clinic over what she described as the inefficiency of the management of the clinic.
The first lady made this disclosure on Monday, October 9, while speaking at a stakeholders meeting on Reproductive, Maternal, Nutrition, Child Advocacy and Health and Nutrition, RMNCAH+N, at the State House, Abuja.
The president's wife said she recently fell ill and was advised to travel to London for treatment, but she refused.
She said she called to clinic to find out about their X-ray machine but to her surprise, she was told that the machine was faulty.
“I called the Aso clinic to find out if they have an X-Ray machine, they said it’s not working. In the end I had to go to a hospital owned and operated by foreigners 100 per cent
“There is a budget for the hospital and if you go there now, you will see a number of constructions going on but they don’t have a single syringe there. What is the purpose of the buildings if there are no equipment there to work with?”
“You can imagine what happens across the states to governors wives if this will happen to me in Abuja,” she said.
