Even Aso Rock clinic is now consulting centre, NHIS Cabals ATM — PDP react to SGF comment on bad hospitals

The Buhari administration has reversed the gains of past administration so much even the once celebrated State House Clinic in the Aso Presidential Villa has been largely reduced to a mere consulting center while our National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) has became the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) of government cronies.

PDP spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan 
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Friday reacted to a comment by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, that he never knew that Nigeria health system was so bad until he was appointed to head the COVID-19 task force.

Mustapha had on Thursday lamented over the poor state of nation's healthcare system, saying he never knew that it was as bad as it is until he was appointed to head the COVID-19 task force.


He said, “I can tell you for sure, I never knew that our entire healthcare infrastructure was in the state in which it is. Until I was appointed to do this work,”

But PDP in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said Mustapha's confession that the nation’s health sector had gone comatose has confirmed the failure of President Muhammadu Buhari administration.




The party also accused the Buhari’s administration of reversing all the gains achieved by the past administration to the extent that even the Aso Rock clinic has become a mere consulting centre while the "National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) has became the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) of government cronies."

The statement reads: "Boss's comments served as a further vindication of its stand that the Buhari administration is the saddest chapter our national history.

"The confession of the SGF, who serves as the very engine room of the Buhari administration, further vindicates our position that President Buhari is running an incompetent administration that thrives only on propaganda and false performance claims, while the nation is left in pains, trauma and agony.



"He portrays this government as one that is not in touch with national reality but only administers the nation remotely from the comfort of Aso villa, while its cronies loot huge budgetary allocations and merely claimed to have released same for the health need of our citizens.

"If anything, the Buhari administration has only succeeded in reversing all the gains made in the health sector by successive PDP administrations whose robust National Strategic Health Development Plan brought in new technologies and effectively repositioned our health institutions for the good of our people.


"The Buhari administration has reversed the gains of past administration so much even the once celebrated State House Clinic in the Aso Presidential Villa has been largely reduced to a mere consulting center while our National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) has became the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) of government cronies.

"The irreversible lesson which the Buhari administration must take from Boss's confession is that no matter how falsehood, propaganda, beguiling and deceit appear to thrive, the truth will always show forth at the end.
