BUHARI AND OBASANJO AT THE PRESIDENTIAL VILLA, ABUJA DURING THE CENTENARY ANNIVERSARY COMMENCEMENT DINNER
BUHARI AND OBASANJO AT THE PRESIDENTIAL VILLA, ABUJA DURING THE CENTENARY ANNIVERSARY COMMENCEMENT DINNER

President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday said apart from the colourful way the nation’s centenary anniversary commencement dinner held last week was packaged, he was impressed by the presence of a former Head of State, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

Buhari, regarded as the most potent opposition figure to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) having contested against all its presidential candidates since 2003, is not a regular caller at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) national leader, who has often posited that he was rigged out of all the presidential elections, boycotted all events at the Presidential Villa.

The President said the presence of Buhari impressed him so much that he asked the former leader to join him in lighting up the centenary torch.

According to the event’s brochure, Buhari was not given any role to play during the event that saw Gen.  Yakubu Gowon unveiling the celebration logo;  Obasanjo presenting the centenary theme and Gen. Abdusalami Abubakar presenting the centenary theme song.

Jonathan said, “When the celebration was packaged and that day when I got there, I was impressed, especially when I saw the former Heads of State, including Gen. Buhari.

“He came that day and that was why I said the two of us should light up the unity torch and I think it was something nice.”
