The All Progressives Congress has accused the Peoples Democratic Party of being insensitive and playing desperate politics with the blood of soldiers killed in the Melete attacks.

The ruling party also said the allegations by the opposition PDP, that military funds had been diverted to finance its 2019 election campaigns, was a sad reminder of the evil and retrogressive practices the PDP was notorious for during its reign.

It stated these in a press statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, on Tuesday in Abuja.

The statement read, “God forbid that the 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 the PDP and its Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, 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.

“The PDP and Atiku are playing desperate politics where even the blood of our fallen heroes is fair game. Their actions are callous and insensitive to the families and dependants of the late soldiers and indeed our military which battles daily to ensure our territorial integrity.”

APC said the insensitive nature of the PDP to national issues in order to always score cheap political points would backfire for the opposition during the election.
