Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) commended President Goodluck Jonathan for the successful Centenary Celebrations, saying the events have ushered in a new era of unity.
The ruling party’s National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, said the party was proud of President Jonathan for organising the events which not only succeeded in putting the nation on the international arena to showcase the country’s best but also fostered unity and genuine reconciliation among its leaders and the people.
The Centenary celebrations had revived Nigeria’s sense of patriotism, he said.
“The Centenary concert not only reminded us of our common root but also pointed us to our rich heritage which comes alive only when we combine our energies as a people. It showed we are indeed one people determined to succeed and that our divisions are as ephemeral as they are artificial.
"The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) appreciate President Goodluck Jonathan for organising the centenary prayers and the Award Nite which for the first time in contemporary history brought together all our living past leaders under one roof despite their differences,” Metuh stated.
He added that Nigerians were moved and their hopes of a peaceful great nation were rekindled when they saw former President Shehu Shagari, General Muhammadu Buhari, General Ibrahim Babangida and General Abdusalami Abubakar come together irrespective of their perceived misunderstandings.
This shows that our differences and disagreements as a nation “do not get to the bones and can always be resolved”, he said.
