Aisha Buhari calls for probe of Aso Rock clinic


Wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Buahri has lamented poor quality service rendered by the State House clinic.

The lamentation is coming weeks after her daughter, Zahra complained lack of basic medical service within the hospital popularly known as Aso Rock Clinic.

Speaking on Monday at a stakeholders meeting on Reproductive, Maternal, Nutrition, Child Advocacy and Health and Nutrition, RMNCAH+N, at the State House Abuja, Aisha said she recently fell ill and was advised to travel to London for treatment, but she refused.

Zahra Buhari had last week taken to her Instagram page to hit the Permanent Secretary of the State House, Jalal Arabi for his inability to provide even Paracetamol tablets to the clinic despite a budget of N3 billion for the provision of drugs to the Hospital. 

And to corroborate her daughters position, Mrs. Buhari said she was forced to use a foreign health facility in Abuja when she recently visited the State House clinic and discovered that some of its  equipment had packed up a situation said must changed.


She wondered what Nigerians are going through in public hospitals across the country when a clinic built to attend to the medical needs of the President and other senior government functionaries with annual budget of nearly N1billion.
