Fadah further stated that the clinic was more conducive for the delivery of quality healthcare for both the corps members and other members of the camp.

“For the clinic construction, we rebuilt an abandoned structure originally designed to serve as orientation broadcasting service but which was later destroyed by rainstorm.

“This new construction will accommodate offices for key officials manning the clinic, in addition to consulting room, pharmacist bay and laboratory,” he said.
