Fayose slams Ekiti Govt over plan to establish Institute of Medical Technology in Ifaki

Listen to article

The Ayo Fayose Campaign Organisation (AFCO) has described the planned

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

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

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

and trust in the ability of the in-coming PDP government to return the

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.
