OSUN State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the state governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola to look into the plight of medical students of Osun State University, who have nowhere to continue their medical training.
A statement by its Director of Media and Strategy, Prince Diran Odeyemi, said it was unfortunate that the students had been left stranded in the country, noting that the ACN government claimed they had been taken to Ukraine to conclude their training.
The PDP said the students were supposed to be completing their training by now in Osogbo going by the progress already achieved by the Olagunsoye Oyinlola administration before the ACN took over in November 2010 and stopped the development of the medical school and the teaching hospital.
The statement reads: ‘’The party claimed that the total money required for the full take-off of the teaching hospital was N1.2billion with the Oyinlola government already mobilising funds in that regard when Aregbesola took over and refused to release the funds even after he met more than half of the amount already mobilised.
