Recall that NAIJ.com previously reported that Mrs Buhari 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 the clinic to find out about their X-ray machine but to her surprise, she was told that the machine was faulty.
