Omoyele Sowore the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress on Wednesday tackled his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi, for his inspection of LP’s vice-presidential candidate, Dr Datti Baba-Ahmed’s hospital in Abuja.
Peter Obi had earlier on his Twitter page on Wednesday shared pictures from his visit to the Baze University Hospital, describing the varsity owned by Baba-Ahmed as exemplary.
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.
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.”
But reacting 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!.”
