The wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, on Monday, called for probe of the Chief Medical Director of the State House Clinic, Dr. Husain Munir
She spoke at the opening of a two-day stakeholders meeting on Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn Child, Adolescent Health and Nutrition held at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa.
The state house clinic was established to take care of the President, Vice-President, their families as well as members of Staff of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Mrs. Buhari said a situation where constructions were going on in the health facility that cannot boast of a syringe was not good enough for the country.
Her words: “Few weeks ago I was sick as well, they advised me to take the first flight out to London I refused to go. I said I must be treated in Nigeria because there is a budget for an assigned clinic to take care of us.
“If the budget is N100 million, we need to know how the budget is spent. Along the line I insisted they call Aso Clinic to find out if the X-tray machine is working, They said it is not working. They didn’t know I am the one that was supposed to be in that hospital at that very time.”
Aisha further told Munir who was present at the event that the budget allocated to the clinic must be accounted for.
