The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State on Monday asked the state government to drop the planned demolition of the Benin Central Hospital in the state capital.
In a statement issued by its Assistant Publicity Secretary in the state, Victor Osheobo, the party rejected the plan to build an ultra-modern motor park at the site of the hospital.
It described the move as part of a plot to ground the state again.
The Edo State Commissioner for Communications and Orientation, Andrew Emwanta, told journalists recently the state government would relocate the hospital to the Stella Obasanjo hospital to pave the way for the transformation of the 100-year-old Central Hospital.
He said the Stella Obasanjo Hospital was being expanded to deliver quality health services to people of the state.
But the APC insisted that the planned demolition of the central hospital was weird and unacceptable
