President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the construction and equipping of a 14-bed space Presidential Clinic at the State House, Abuja, at a cost of N21billion.
The Permanent Secretary, State House, Umar Tijjani, disclosed this when he appeared before the Senate Committee on Federal Character and Inter-Governmental Affairs to present the 2022 budget proposal for the seat of power.
He said Julius Berger Nigeria Plc will handle the project.
According to him, the construction giant was picked to handle the project because it built the State House and had been maintaining the facility since 1990.
Tijjani said work on the clinic would start on November 1.
