The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been accused by the All Progressives Congress (APC) of being insensitive for politicizing a terrorist attack that took the lives of Nigerians in order to gain electoral advantage.
The APC’s spokesman, Barr Felix Morka, said in a statement on Friday that it is insensitive for the PDP to “politicize a terrorist attack that took the lives of our dear ones.”
The statement read, “While our nation is in deep mourning over the recent terrorist train attack and other acts of violence perpetrated by avowed enemies of our nation, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has sought to profit from our collective grief and tragedy in its desperate quest to seize power and plunge our country back into ruinous looting ways.
“In one of its many irrational outbursts, the PDP has suggested that the All Progressives Congress, APC-led government is complicit in the heinous train attack in which some of our compatriots lost their lives, several injured, and others unaccounted for.
“While the PDP digs deep in the mud trying to find electoral gold, President Muhammadu Buhari, in a swift response to this tragic event, met with Security Chiefs and directed the immediate conclusion of all processes for implementation of the integrated Security Surveillance and Monitoring System (ISSM) solution for Abuja-Kaduna Rail Line as well as the extension of the ISSM solution to cover the Lagos – Ibadan Rail Line.
