Ekiti - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State has condemned the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its presidential aspirant, Atiku Abubakar for commissioning an uncompleted General Hospital in Ado-Ekiti.
The ruling party described the opposition party as a party of deceit and urged Nigerians, especially the South-west, to reject the party totally in the next year general election.
The party described the commissioning of the project in Ado-Ekiti by the former Vice President, Atiku, as "shameful."
“God forbid, if these APC people should take over government in Nigeria, in six months, the original Nigeria would have been sold and what will be paraded to us as a country will be the photocopy,” PDP lashed.
In a statement issued by the its State Secretary, Dr Tope Aluko, the party said by bringing Atiku to Ekiti State earlier this month to commission a hospital building "with only the outside painted and structures inside still under construction", former Governor Kayode Fayemi "had shown the level at which the APC can fool Nigerians.”
It added that it was "painful" that Fayemi’s APC government in Ekiti State could spend N3.3 billion borrowed funds to construct a new government house while a hospital project started in 2008 by a PDP government was not completed.

“This APC is just a party of deceits. It is a party of haters of the common people of Nigeria. If not that the APC hates the people, why would a government preferred to spend N3.3 billion borrowed fund on a new government house meant for the governor and his family alone while a hospital project that has direct impact on the well-being of the people was abandoned?"
“That Fayemi’s APC government was able to complete a N3.3 billion new government house within two years while a hospital project it met on ground was abandoned is a sign of what the party would have done with Nigeria if it was in control of the federal government."
The ruling party added, "Most importantly, that Atiku, a presidential aspirant and one of the leaders of the party could commission a hospital without seeing the inside shows the manner of deceit the APC represents and Nigerians should take note of this as they prepare for the 2015 general elections."
