The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore has lambasted his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi, for his decision to inspect the hospital belonging to his running mate, Dr. Datti Baba-Ahmed’s in Abuja.
Africa Today News, New York reports that Obi had on Wednesday on his Twitter page shared pictures from his visit to the Baze University Hospital, describing as exemplary the varsity owned by Baba-Ahmed.
According to him, The institution is exemplary and reflective of a centre of excellence, and what domestic entrepreneurs and investors can contribute to nation-building.
He wrote, ‘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.’
He further added that; ‘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.’
However, in his reaction to the visit, Sowore said he was surprised that Obi visited Baba-Ahmed’s hospital rather than the ‘university teaching hospital’ he allegedly built during his tenure as Anambra State governor.
He wrote, ‘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 had recently taken a swipe at Obi, for celebrating the honorary citizenship conferred on him in the United States.
Africa Today News, New York recalls that Obi had in the early hours of Wednesday shared the news of his honorary citizenship of Dallas on his social media handle.
In his reaction, Sowore declared that Obi had been scammed and that the certificate wasn’t worth the paper it was printed on.
