The Nasarawa State Chapter of the People’s Democratic Party has sympathizes with the families of seven students of the Nasarawa State University, Keffi over the death of their family members during a stampede at the venue of the sharing of 7.5kg ohf rice and N5000.

The party in a one-page statement signed by the State Chairman, Honorable Francis Orogu wondered why the authority concerned would embark on a distribution of palliative to a University community in the manner it did when there are well structured platforms such as Departments, Unions and religious groups that would have handled this in an orderly manner.

“PDP in Nasarawa state today received with shock and grief the death of some students of the Nasarawa State University, Keffi steming from the stampede that occurred in the institution”.

The opposition party faulted those responsible for the distribution of the palliative for the unfortunate incidence, did not only see the incident as unfortunate but unnecessary considering the fact that this unfortunate and avoidable incident would have been averted if proactive measures were taken by the authorities concerned to check abuse that could lead to unfortunate outcomes like the untimely demise of these students.
