It is indeed a source of patriotic concern for the Ogun state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that the general well being of the people of Ogun state has been, once again compromised on the platter of unpardonable mockery by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) government in Ogun state.
We find it extremely laughable the intensity of sensation across a section of the media where the ruling APC government took to the street few days ago in celebration of the newly procured Ambulance for rural medical needs. The government even boastfully called it a “remarkable stride in medical accomplishments”.
For us as a political party that is irrevocably committed to well being of the people, we hold, with all conviction that the Keke NAPEP erroneously called ambulance is another calculated deceit to milk the people further as the so called ambulances are not durable enough to stand the test of time. It is just another orchestrated magic by an extremely wicked government to swindle the state.
As a reasonable political organization, our great party still keeps wondering why any government, in all honesty, would keep showcasing delibrate deceit in order to appear busy in delivering dividends of responsive government to the people. Can anybody explain the possibility of an emergency bed stretcher fitting into this Keke Ambulance with full paramedics in attendance?
Also, it is fundamentally necessary for the people to be equipped with the knowledge that chassis of the much celebrated Keke NAPEP are not long and strong enough to carry a bed stretcher.
For us as a party, we are convinced that the government under the watchful eyes of Prince Dapo Abiodun has, just as it has always done, has supervised another flight of tax payers money into some private vaults outside the state. He has, again committed the state’s funds into another wasteful bazaar.
Ordinarily, providing ambulances for rural medical needs, especially at this time for the people may not be entirely be out of place given the harsh reality of covid 19 and its marks. We are however, very certain that a sincere and sensitive government would dispassionately think of better vehicles with stronger and longer chasis that can serve the purpose of providing community health care.
In any case, it quite clear the ruling government is determined to service some interests with Ogun state commonwealth. Hence, we wonder why the purchase of ambulances takes priority attention over widespread insecurity currently going on across the state.
We feel very sad that despite all the socioeconomic hardship the people have been made to go through, in recent times, the insensitive APC government still chooses to throw all known milk of sympathy and compassion for the public good to the dogs by deceiving the people .
For us as a party, we shall remain an irrepressible voice on the side of the people. We continue to mobilize and educate the people until Ogun state returns to the pride of place it deserves.
