APC Destroyed Ondo – Arebuwa



APC Destroyed Ondo - Arebuwa

A governorship aspirant under the platform of the People Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State, Bosun Arebuwa, has stated that the incumbent All Progressive Congress (APC) has destroyed the state, making it worse than it has ever been, News About Nigeria reports.

Arebuwa, who stated this in Akure, the state capital, noted that the APC government in Ondo State has taken Ondo State to the lowest point on the socioeconomic ladder.

He said that damages done by the APC in the state include, destroying the health infrastructure of the state, disincentivising education through unaccountable actions and decisions, personalising government and government institutions, and generally demoralising the populace.

“The APC government in Ondo State has treated health workers with disdain and total disregard, hence the mass movement of doctors and nurses out of the employ of our state.

“The argument that this is a national reality falls flat when viewed against the fact that our own health workers are moving from our health institutions to neighbouring states where they are treated with more dignity and where facilities are more functional.

“At the apex health institution in Ondo State, diagnostic facilities have all but collapsed. While people were being referred from OAUTH, EKSUTH and the rest to UNIMED and the Trauma Centre before, the opposite is now the case!” he lamented.

He also stated that the educational system in the state was deteriorating, noting that students are being made to pay more in tertiary institutions with near zero improvement in infrastructure, adding that at the secondary school level, no tangible improvements or innovations have been recorded.

He, however, assured the people that if given the party ticket, he would leave behind a legacy of excellent developments in education, health, youth empowerment, agribusiness, industrial growth and security among others.

“The PDP, which I hope to be its flag bearer, will be coming with policies, strategies and actions that will make government more open, more accountable, and less expensive to run.

“We shall be working to entrench a new paradigm of functional and effective education through a combination of modern and nimbler school infrastructural reengineering on the basis of contemporary skill and professional needs,” he stated.
