The African Action Congress (AAC) presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, has hit out at Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party(LP), over his visit to his running mate Dr Datti Baba-Ahmed’s hospital in Abuja.
Daug Embassy TV reports that Sowore, while reacting to the visit, said he wasn’t expecting Obi to be inspecting a hospital owned by LP’s vice-presidential candidate, Dr Datti Baba-Ahmed, which isn’t accessible and affordable to the majority of Nigerians.
Instead, he (Sowore) thought Obi will rather be inspecting the alleged ‘university teaching hospital’ he built during his tenure as Anambra State governor.
The AAC presidential candidate noted that “I thought you & Datti would be inspecting the international standard “University Teaching Hospital” they claimed you built while you were governor of Anambra state and not a private hospital built by Datti, which obviously is not accessible/affordable to majority Of Nigerians!.”
Sowore’s reaction comes after Obi had earlier posted pictures from his visit to the Baze University Hospital, owned by Baba-Ahmed, his running mate, in Abuja.
The LP presidential hopeful wrote on his Twitter page @PeterObi: “this morning, I had the privilege of visiting the Baze University Hospital in Abuja and inspecting the facilities. Dr Datti Baba-Ahmed was on hand to show me around.
“This institution is exemplary and reflective of a centre of excellence, and what domestic entrepreneurs and investors can contribute to nation-building.
“With several more facilities like this, medical tourism for Nigerians will be a thing of the past. This is simply awesome. – PO.”
