Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has denounced the centenary anniversary celebrations going on in Abuja, describing it as ‘inappropriate’.
Atiku was reacting to the decision of the Federal Government to go ahead with the celebrations despite the recent massacre of over 29 students in Yobe.
He, however, congratulated Nigerians and President Goodluck Jonathan on the occasion of 100years of the amalgamation of the Northern and Southern protectorates.
In a statement posted on his Facebook page, Atiku said: “I’m appalled by this obscenity showing on NTA in the name of Centenary Celebration. It is inappropriate!
“I’m proud of our history over the last 100 years. I congratulate our President and Nigerians for this journey so far.
“However, I totally denounce the party currently happening in Abuja. It is a symbolic dance on the graves of those murdered FGC children. It’s a slap on the faces of those FGC parents currently mourning their children, and those crying over their abducted children”.
