Why There Are No Drugs In State House Clinic by Alisegun(m): 7:26am On Nov 03, 2017
The large number of people taking free treatment at the State House Clinic is responsible for the lack of drugs at the hospital, Permanent Secretary State House Jala Arabi has said.

This is contained in the report on the Clinic he submitted to the House of Representatives committee looking into the alarm on the poor state of the hospital raised by Wife of the President Mrs Aisha Buhari.

The Hon. Magaji Aliyu-headed ad-hoc committee had requested the Ministry of Health and Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to provide detailed account of the State House Clinic.

The members expressed concern over the report presented by Arabi that out of 329 personnel working in the State House Clinic, 47 non-core medical personnel for several years illegally collected call-duty allowances.

According to him, some doctors sponsored by the State House on Residency Programmes (usually 2 years), got their call duty allowances paid “even though they are no longer performing call duties at the medical Centre.”

He said despite their failure to enlist on the State House Clinic’s National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), 80 per cent of the State House workers and their spouses are enjoying free medical services, at the expense of the government

Minister of State for Health, Osagie Ehanire and the FCT Health Secretary, Mrs Amanda Pam told the committee that the state House clinic is not directly under the Ministry of Health and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) admnistration.
