The Ayo Fayose Campaign Organisation (AFCO) has described the planned establishment of an Institute of Medical Technology in Ifaki-Ekiti, Ido/Osi Local Government of Ekiti State by Governor Kayode Fayemi as a "greek gift" that should be rejected by the people of Ifaki-Ekiti.

In a release issued today, and signed by the Director General of AFCO, Chief Dipo Anisulowo, the planned Medical Technology Institute was described as an insult on the people of Ifaki-Ekiti, saying; "It is only a wicked government that will take away, a university from a community and come back three years after with a plan to replace it with an Institute of Medical Technology. Or isn't it an act of wickedness to take a 18-seater Bus from someone and replace it with Okada?"

AFCO, which reiterated the promise of Mr Ayo Fayose to return the University of Science and Technology, Ifaki-Ekiti (USTI), which was scrapped by the Fayemi administration, added that; "what Ifaki people deserve is a return of USTI and that is exactly what they will get the moment PDP takes over power on October 16, 2014."

"Fayemi, out of his hatred for Segun Oni, closed down USTI after a Education Summit that was programmed to work towards a pre-determined answer.

"As at the time USTI was scrapped, the university already had an arrangement with a South Korean university to run an exchange programme that will give the students the opportunity of earning dual certificates. 36 students of USTI were already billed to travel to South Korea for the programme before the university was scrapped.

"The first question that the All Progressives Congress (APC) retrogressive government in Ekiti State must answer is; why was the full fledged Science and Technology University that the PDP government of Engr. Segun Oni established in Ifaki-Ekiti scrapped?

"How can a right thinking government close down a thriving university, only to replace it with a School of Science and Laboratory Technology and now Institute of Medical Technology?

"That to us is greek gift, packaged to deceive the people of Ifaki-Ekiti so as to get their votes, but that will not work because the people already have confidence and trust in the ability of the in-coming PDP government to return the university that Fayemi took away from Ifaki-Ekiti.

"Our promise to Ifaki people is that Fayose's government will return USTI, and we advise Fayemi and men to stop insulting Ifaki people," AFCO said.
