Facility for Buhari, Osinbajo, VIPs
The Chief of Staff to the President, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, yesterday laid the foundation for the construction of the N21.9bn 14-bed presidential clinic.
He said the clinic, when completed, would provide the needed medicare for the president of Nigeria, his deputy and other government officials.
He said: “It’s a humble beginning but what we’re doing today will outlive the current administration and would serve many generations yet unborn.
“We know how important health is to the life of every individual and government will continue to do its best to deliver healthcare to the people.”
He urged the construction company handling the project to commence work immediately and work hard to complete the project within the time frame allocated.
Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, said it was a historical day for the health sector in Nigeria.
“We give glory to God for a day like this, not the words said here today will be remembered, but the action because in months, years and many decades to come, this facility will serve a lot of people including sitting Presidents of Nigeria, visiting Presidents and senior members of the State House. Everybody that will come to use this facility will find succour. It’s to the glory of God and for the good of man,” Adesina said.
