The wife of the president Mrs Aisha Buhari, has called for probe into the expenses of N3.2b budget for the state house medical centre at the presidential villa Abuja.

Mrs Buhari has criticised what she describes as lack of facilities in the clinic inspire of huge budgetary allocation.

She made the call in Abuja today, at the opening of a two-day Stakeholders meeting on RMNCAH+N – Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, Adolescent Health and Nutrition.

She decried the “lack of facilities”, including syringes, at the centre despite the huge budgetary allocation and ongoing construction there.

She said, “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.”

More details soon…
