The House of Representatives has set up an adhoc committee to investigate allegations of malpractices and incompetence leveled against the Aso Rock clinic by the first lady Aisha Buhari.

Henry Archibong representing Itu/Ibiono Ibom federal constituency, on Thursday, October 12, moved a motion calling for an investigation into deplorable conditions at the State House clinic.

It was gathered that the House commended Mrs Buhari for her exemplary show of patriotism and selflessness in bringing the allegations into its hearing.

The House also agreed to set up an adhoc committee to investigate the deplorable condition of the State House clinic and the alleged deductions from the salaries and allowances of the medical staff and report back within three weeks for further legislative action.

Recall that previously reported that Mrs Buhari called for the probe of Aso Rock clinic over what she described as the inefficiency of the management of the clinic.

The first lady made this disclosure on Monday, October 9, while speaking at a stakeholders meeting on Reproductive, Maternal, Nutrition, Child Advocacy and Health and Nutrition, (RMNCAH+N) at the state House, Abuja.

The president’s wife said she recently fell ill and was advised to travel to London for treatment, but she refused. She said she called the clinic to find out about their X-ray machine but to her surprise, she was told that the machine was faulty.
