Members of the House of Representatives were in shock on Monday after undertaking a facility tour of the State House Medical Centre, Abuja, describing its state as “quite disturbing.”
An ad hoc committee of the House, after the visit, also said the clinic needed urgent rehabilitation and equipping else it would no longer be advisable to offer medical services there.
The committee, which is chaired by a member of the All Progressives Congress, Mr. Aliyu Magaji, was mandated by the House to investigate the centre after President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha, complained that services at the facility had collapsed.
The House is investigating how the N10.9bn the health facility reportedly collected for its services between 2015 and 2017 was spent.
