The Peoples Democratic Party in Oyo State has criticised the ruling government over alleged abandonment of Apete bridge that was washed away by the flood of August 26, 2011.

The party, in a release signed by its publicity secretary, Mr. Lukuman Agboluaje, wondered how a government that styled itself as progressive and committed to the welfare of the people could be comfortable seeing hundreds of thousands of its inhabitants suffering in silence.

The PDP recalled how the ACN government allegedly created the impression that it was touched by the agony of the people of the area by rapidly putting up a temporary bridge as a palliative measure, but later abandoned the actual construction work it awarded to a contractor.
