Concentrate On Governance And Your Health Problems, PDP Tells Aregbesola

Listen to article

SAN FRANCISCO, April 12, (THEWILL) - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South West has admonished the Osun State Governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola to focus on governance and his “obvious” health problems, instead of raising false alarms of threat to his life.

PDP argued that the call was necessitated by the governor's admission in newspaper interviews last year that he was in India to undergo a PET scan.

“If there is any threat to Aregbesola's life, it must be from the health problems that took him to India last year,” zonal publicity secretary of the party, Hon. Kayode Babade said in a statement issued on Thursday. “By Aregbesola's confession in an interview published in the Leadership newspaper of September 11, 2011 that he was in India to undergo a Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan, no one should be in doubt as to health challenges facing the governor.”

The statement further reads: “It is on record that Aregbesola said by himself: 'My local medical doctor had insisted that I needed medical check up and I should undergo PET scan or clinical image and the only place in the world that is good is India.'

“In medicine, Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a medical imaging technology that allows physicians to visualise the body's abnormal cellular activity. PET scans produce digital pictures that can, in many cases, aid the physician in identifying several forms of cancer, damaged heart tissue and brain disorders.

“The reality is that, if Aregbesola was asked by his own personal doctor to examine his body system, especially his brain, no one should be in doubt that something is wrong with him.

"Even his behaviour since he came back needs further analysis especially his utterances, and most importantly the burning of his bedroom in the Government House, with him locking the door and travelling to Lagos while the place was on fire.

“Therefore, the Action Congress of Nigeria should stop making noise about anyone planning to kill Aregbesola. Rather, it should show love to the governor by advising him to pay more attention to his health, which poses greater challenges to his life, PDP said.
