President Muhammadu Buhari will on Friday, May 19th, 2023 officially launch the N21 billion state-of-the-art Presidential/VIP Wing of the State House Medical Centre in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

State House spokesperson, Abiodun Oladunjoye, in a statement on Wednesday said the inauguration of the facility is a demonstration of Buhari’s commitment to advancing healthcare management in Nigeria.

The facilities include a healing garden and an organ transplant operating room which will cater to the President, Vice President (VP), their immediate families and other Very Important Personalities (VIPs).

“We are excited that Mr. President has kindly consented to inaugurate this legacy and transformative project on the cusp of the completion of his two-term tenure as President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” Oladunjoye stated.

“Since the inception of this project in 2021, the State House Management has successfully completed several projects including a Special Care Centre, Biosafety Level 2 Molecular Laboratory, certified by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), a medium capacity incinerator and the Dental Wing Extension Building at the State House Medical Centre, Asokoro.

“It has also successfully completed a block of 2-bedroom flats at the Staff Quarters of the Medical Centre, as well as a 54-seater State House Multi-Purpose Training Centre at the Auditorium.”

Oladunjoye said that after the ribbon-cutting ceremony, President Buhari, accompanied by the Permanent Secretary of the State House, Tijjani Umar, will embark on a guided tour of the hospital.

According to him, the ground-breaking ceremony of the legacy project situated within the premises of the Presidential Villa was conducted by the Chief of Staff to the President, Prof Ibrahim Gambari, on November 1, 2021.

He added that the Conference Car Unit (CCU) workshop and the Modern Fleet Management hub will be commissioned next week.
