Senate President Godswill Akpabio has disclosed plans by the leadership of the National Assembly to build a state-of-the-art medical facility for senators, House of Representatives members, guests and staff of the legislative body.

Akpabio, who spoke on Thursday in Abuja, while welcoming senators back from recess, said the medical facility would be given top priority in the second legislative year.

The 10th National Assembly which clocked one year on June 13, 2024 already has a clinic.

Akpabio said, “In this our second legislative year, it is our plan to establish a state-of-the-art medical facility in close proximity to us to serve the distinguished senators, honourable members, National Assembly staff, and our esteemed guests.

This initiative aims to provide functional and effective healthcare for all. Within the last legislative year, we also completed and commissioned the National Assembly Library.”

He also implored the lawmakers to be committed about the welfare of the people in their actions and decisions, adding that they shouldn’t forget the cardinal principle of service to the people.
