Published

on

The Federal Government has declared Thursday, October 1, as public holiday in commemoration of the nation’s 60th Independence Anniversary Celebration.

Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola who made the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government,has also congratulated all Nigerians on the celebration of the country’s Diamond Jubilee and assured them of Government’s unwavering commitment to the socio-economic transformation of the country.

The Minister’s declaration was contained in a statement issued Tuesday in Abuja and signed by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Barr. Georgina Ekeoma Ehuriah.

Accoy to the minister, “our warmth, welcoming spirit and love as well as the abundant wealth inherent in our human capital and the richness of our land, makes Nigeria unarguably the leading black nation in the world and Africa’s pride and beacon of hope, if we can rally ourselves together to harness our potentials.

“A country of about 200 million people whose natural talent, grit and passion glitter like the precious DIAMOND that we are. Nigerians are sparkling like diamonds in the pack, whether in Academia, Business, Innovation, Music, Movie, Entertainment, Fashion and culture. We are indeed the leading black nation in the entire world and no doubt Africa’s pride and beacon of hope”.

He regretted that although celebrating sixty years of independence really calls for pomp and pageantry, the global COVID-19 pandemic has forced all nations in the world to think and act cautiously, necessitating a low-keyed celebration at this time.

“While wishing Nigerians a fruitful independence celebration, he reminded them of the fact that our founding fathers, in spite of the differences in faith, tribe and tongue came together for Nigeria’s independence.

“He therefore called on all Nigerians to join hands together with the present Administration in its quest to ensure a better Nigeria for all citizens, both at home and abroad as this, he said, shall be a befitting tribute to the struggles of our heroes past. We must together make Nigeria great”, he added.
