President Buhari is seen in an all smiles photo with his wife Aisha Buhari. This picture was taken hours after the first lady called for the probe into the state house hospital budgetary allocation yesterday, October 9th.
According to her, she fell ill and decided to use the hospital that was meant for everyone in the villa but was shocked at the state of the affairs as the hospital lacked basic amenities such as a syringe.She said:
“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.”
