Most hit, it was further learnt, are patients with kidney problems who are currently undergoing dialysis in the facility.
Although, some of them are expected to be undergoing the dialysis at least twice a week, the centre’s management has been cancelling such exercise lately, therefore putting the lives of the patients at risk.
In some instances when they attend to them, the patients are made to come with some of the items the doctors will use for the exercise.
Many other patients who spoke said the medical centre could no longer boast of “ordinary malaria drugs.”
“The clinic does not even have ordinary paracetamol. Paracetamol was included in the list of drugs they asked me to go and buy recently. Before now, they were giving us drugs.” another patient said.
The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, did not pick his calls when a correspondent attempted to get his reaction on Tuesday.
He also did not respond to a text message sent to him on the issue. The questions on the lips of Nigerians is the fate of the funds allocated to the clinic which is suspected to have been diverted by government officials under the nose of the anti-corruption warlord, President Muhammadu Buhari.
