Morka said while the APC mourns with those who lost their lives and the injured in the train attack, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is seeking to “profit from our collective grief and tragedy in its desperate quest to seize power and plunge our country back into ruinous looting ways.”

He said one of the PDP’s many irrational outbursts suggested that the 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.”

According to him, “It is outright unconscionable, insensitive and irresponsible for the PDP to seek to politicize a terrorist attack that cut short the lives of our dear ones for its own base interest. Granted that Nigerians have become accustomed to PDP’s arrant flippancy, the occasion of a national tragedy is not exactly a good time for puerile rascality.

He APC national publicity secretary accused the PDP of idle mud slinging while the several senior administration officials visited and condoled with bereaved families and extended support and care to those injured in the attack.
