Residents of Apo-Dutse community in Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) have complained of lack of drugs at the primary health care centre and have called on government to come to their aid. A visit to the health centre showed that most people who were attended to at the centre took their prescriptions to patent medicine stores.
They called on the Federal Government to come to their aid by making drugs available to enable them enjoy good health care services. A panel beater in the community, Ismaila Yakubu said when his second son suffered typhoid; he had to take him to Wuse General Hospital for treatment.
Yakubu who is a father of five said the primary health care centre in the community does not have drugs. “When my son was ill, we took him to Wuse General Hospital so that tests could be carried out and the hospital told us that he had typhoid. I thought it was malaria when he was treated, he regained his health.’’
He lamented that if drugs were available and the clinic was equipped, he would not have had to spend so much on the treatment of his son.
