The Chief Medical Director of the State House Clinic has come under fire over the poor state of the Clinic especially lack of syringes and moribund x-ray machine.

Aisha Buhari, the wife of the President, on Monday publicly berated the Chief Medical Director of the State House Clinic, Dr. Husain Munir, Buhari over the decrepit state of the clinic, lamenting a situation where constructions were going on in the health facility that could not boast of a syringe.

Mrs Buhari, according to The Punch, 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.

She recalled that when she was sick recently and was advised to travel abroad because of the poor state of the health facility established to take care of the President, Vice-President, their families as well as members of Staff of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The President’s wife said she had to go to a private hospital owned by foreigners when she was told that the x-ray machine in the State House Clinic was not working.

“I called on the Aso Rock Clinic to find out if they have an X-Ray machine. They said it’s not working. At 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 is 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.
