The All Progressives Congress (APC) has blasted the People’s Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, over their criticism of the APC led administration on the casualties recorded from the recent Boko Haram attack on soldiers at Metele.
In a statement released by APC publicity secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, the party accused the PDP and Atiku of dancing on the grave of Nigeria valiant and patriotic soldiers by politicising their deaths in the recent Boko Haram Metele attack.
The full statement read:
Metele Attack: The allegations by PDP that military funds have been diverted to finance the 2019 elections campaigns of the APC is a sad reminder of the evil and retrogressive practices the PDP was notorious for during its defunct rule.
God forbid that APC inherits and apply such morbid practice as brazenly displayed during the immediate-past PDP administration where funds allocated to fight the Boko Haram insurgency in the Northeast were shared among PDP leaders and their cronies.
It is clear that PDP and its Presidential candidate, Atiku have decided to dance on the graves of our valiant and patriotic soldiers by politicising their deaths in the recent Boko Haram attack on the Nigerian Army Metele base.
PDP and Atiku are playing desperate politics where even the blood of our fallen heroes is fair game. Their actions are callous & insensitive to the families of the late soldiers & indeed our military which battles daily to ensure our territorial integrity.
Nigerians see through PDP ploy to score political points as elections approach and it will surely backfire.
While the APC mourns the death of our military and other security personnel who have lost their lives in the line of duty, we urge them to remain focused on the brave task of securing the nation.
The President Muhammadu Buhari administration remains solidly committed to bringing lasting peace and security to all parts of the country and ensuring that previously displaced persons are rehabilitated to resume their normal and productive lives.
