We are responsible for Eagles' failure - Abuja indigenes

A group, Abuja Grassroots Advocacy Projects, which claims to be the indigenous people of Abuja, has said that Nigeria will never win any match at the MKO Abiola Stadium.

According to them, the stadium is cursed because it is sitting on the graves of their ancestors while accusing the Federal Government of neglecting the natives and forcefully seizing their lands without compensating them.

In a statement signed by Yunusa Ahmadu Yusuf and Buhari Barkonun Abuja, the group claimed that since the Federal Government has failed to compensate the original occupants of the kukwaba district before their partial resettlement to kubwa, Nigeria should never expect any victory from both local and international tournament where the Abuja National stadium was used.

They also allege that the Federal Government has been treating the FCT natives like third-class citizens, threatening that the “long term consequences will continue to haunt and demean Nigeria’s dignity until the age-long issues against the Nigerian government are addressed.”
