Atiku Abubakar Condemns Jonathan’s 100 Centenary Celebration


Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar is not a happy man at the moment and he has not hesitated to vent out his anger.
He condemned President Jonathan's Celebration of the Centenary of Nigeria’s 100th anniversary regarding the amalgamation of the Northern and Southern Protectorates in 1914.

Atiku who recently accused Federal government of "chasing shadows" over the boko haram attack on students in Yobe state is confused on why the President decided to go on with the celebration which was aired on TV, instead Jonathan “ought to have been sober in view of the recent killings”.
Atiku who was absent from the international submit held yesterday in Abuja in a statement said, “I'm appalled by this obscenity showing on NTA, in the name of ‘Centenary Celebration.’ It is inappropriate! It is even obscene. I'm proud of our history over the last 100 years. I congratulate our President, and (all) Nigerians for this journey so far. “However,” Atiku said, “I totally denounce the party currently taking place in Abuja. It is a symbolic dance on the graves of those murdered Federal Government College children. It's also a slap on the faces of those Federal Government College parents currently mourning their children, and those crying over their abducted children.”
At press time, officials inside the Jonathan government have declined to comment on the stance offered by the former vice president.
