Aisha Buhari commissions 'mobile clinic'

President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha, has commissioned a mobile clinic programme to provide basic and essential health care services to people, especially those living in hard to reach areas of the country.

The event took place on Wednesday at the State House.

Speaking at the event, Mrs. Buhari said the programme is part of the humanitarian services that her pet project, Future Assured, provides to underprivileged Nigerians especially those that reside in the remotest parts of this country.

The mobile medical outreach, as stated by the national coordinator of Future Assured, Kamal Mohammed, is about improving health and providing services in remote areas.

He said the clinic is equipped with consultation, dispensing, and observation areas as well as a mini-lab and a nursing station.

“With the commissioning of this vehicle, organizing the medical outreach done frequently by Future Assured to remote areas is now easier.” Said Mrs. Buhari.

So far, medical screening has held at Cross River, Enugu, Oyo, Ogun, Kogi, Nasarawa, Adamawa and Katsina states in order to create a sense of health consciousness among citizens, with thousands of beneficiaries checked for blood pressure, malaria, blood sugar and sickle cell.

The activities will continue in other states, a statement by Mrs. Buhari’s office said.

Mrs. Buhari said the clinic would provide routine screening of chronic ailments including Vitamin A supplementation and deworming of children, as well as treatment of minor medical conditions.

It will also identify client operations that require referral to Primary Health Care and other health centers for further management or continuity of care.

So far, two of these mobile clinics are available to service FCT and its catchment areas, with additional units envisaged in the near future to service remote communities in all geographical zones.

These humanitarian services of Future Assured are aimed at complementing government’s efforts in health care delivery.

      • George

        And you forgot to add that one has oil under her lands while another is from Cameroon.

        • Julius

          Yeah and the land has oil under the Nigeria Territory ! You forgot that before oil, those wet -backs were being fed and schooled by the resources from other places/regions in the country.

    Nigerians and short memory. Oh the irony that Aisha re-commisions Yar Adua’s dying days ambulance with a lick of paint while her husband squanders our commonwealth on London medical vacation. If Aisha Lie Mohammed’s that it is new, let her produce the purchase receipt and import duty certificate. Aisha the Maradona, the more we look the less we see, Premium Times is now the premium reporters of donations ko? Kontinu.

    Sheer hypocrisy and absolute corruption from Buhari’s Other Room where his wife’s job is to look after him. Is Buhari blind as well as his ear infection induced deafness? Since Nigerians are now watching the second dismal series of the “Return Of The Saint Muhammadu Buhari”, when are the customs authorities and Sahara Reporters crack investigative journalists going to show Nigerians a real scoop, for example they can make a start with the paid import duty certificate of that multi-million dollar Mobile Motorized Clinic (Intensive Care Life Support) Vehicle that “Saint” Aisha Buhari’s “accountable” Future Assured “charity” commissioned recently “to provide medical services to displaced persons in north-east nigeria”. Whether Saint Aisha imported that vehicle recently, or acquired it locally, or even commandeered it whenever from wherever by whatever means, with this unstellar piece of abhorrently retrospective piece of customs and excise policy, everybody and nobody in Nigeria deserves to know the cost of that vehicle, it’s year and locale of manufacture, when it was imported into Nigeria by and for Saint Aisha’s Future Assured, and how much import duty was paid. Anything short of that is sheer hypocrisy, and corruption, from the highest of low places in the public polity.
