First Lady, Aisha Buhari’s criticism of the Aso clinic has continued to spread on the internet like a wildfire.
Aisha Buhari called for the probe of how the N3.2 billion budgetary allocation for the state house hospital are been spent.
According to the first Lady, she shocked to learn that most of the medical equipments at the Aso Clinic aren’t functional when she fell ill. Aisha also alleged that the over hyped hospital lacked basic items such as a syringe.
In her words :
“Few weeks ago I was sick as well, they advised me to take the first flight out to London (but) 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-ray 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. If somebody like Mr President can spend several months outside Nigeria, then you wonder what will happen to a common man on the street in Nigeria.” she said
