The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State on Friday reacted to the criticism of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on its intention to identify with APC brethren in Kogi State.
The opposition party alleged that the state’s APC was planning to fund the re-election bid of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State.
According to the ruling party, this, without any ambiguity, is a mischievous claim.
A statement by its spokesman, Alex Kalejaiye said “For the records, the state chapter plans to set up a committee that has a clear assignment: To boost the morale of our party members in Kogi State.
” It is ridiculous for any individual or a political party, especially one that has national colouration, to allege that Ondo State chapter would build a war chest for an election holding in Kogi State, or anywhere else for that matter.
“Without dispute, the APC-led government in the State harbours no space for financial recklessness. This has drawn applause from objective and sincere observers and resulted in maximising benefits of levies and taxes for the welfare of the people.
”A government that dwells in the realm of frivolity would not contemplate the on-going transformation and industrialization in Ore.
“Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has repeatedly bragged about what he would do to support the PDP in Ondo. We perceive same as normal political arrogance”.
It said contrary to the PDP’s allegation that the APC-led government has destroyed the health sector, the party declared with all sense of modesty that the current administration has so far employed about half a million health workers to ensure quality health services.
APC said Akeredolu’s government had expended billions of Naira on several medical equipment; imported for the wellbeing of our people.
Besides,it said that the government upgraded and expanded additional five General Hospitals to boost healthcare delivery in our dear state.
The party urged the discerning people of the State to mock the unimpressive attempt of the PDP, and keep faith with a government that was going the extra mile to right the wrongs of decades.
