Stop President Buhari From Medical Trips – Senate To State House Officials

As part of measures to ensure that the State House clinic becomes functional this year, the members of the Senate Committee on Federal Character have asked State House officials to restrain President Buhari from making any further medical trips abroad.

The Committee gave the warning when the State House Permanent Secretary, Tijani Umar, appeared before the panel to defend the 2021 budget estimates for the statehouse.

Umar had presented a budget of N19.7bn for 2021, out of which N1.3bn was proposed for the State House Clinic.

Reacting to the proposal, the Chairman of the Senate panel, Senator Danjuma La’ah, said the committee would approve the budget for the State House Clinic but insisted that the President and other top officials of his government should no longer be flown abroad for medical treatment.

After the budget defence, Umar told newsmen that the statehouse would work towards ensuring the state house clinic is functional to meet the medical needs of President Buhari and other top government officials.

President Buhari has made quite a number of foreign medical trips since he assumed office in 2015.
