I congratulate all Nigerians as we rejoice our 60th Independence Anniversary. Right this moment is one other distinctive day in our nation’s historical past. It marks six a long time of the anniversary of our self-rule. It’s an event that commemorates our political freedom.


Sixty years in the past, we made a procession of victory, as we bade farewell to colonialism and emancipated our lands from the clutches of servitude. It was a day of hope, guarantees and nice expectations amplified by the truth of freedom and the vista of huge alternatives.


We could not have met all of the expectations and fulfilled all the guarantees that got here with our independence. It could appear that we’re punching beneath our weight by way of the speed of growth and financial progress however we’ve recorded some progress, triumphed over challenges and excelled in lots of spheres. In sports activities, leisure, arts, schooling and even in politics; The Inexperienced – White – Inexperienced has flown with satisfaction, honour and dignity within the comity of countries, within the final 60 years.


Like many different nice nations, our journey has been that of combined fortunes. Our nation has been by way of durations of progress and occasions of setbacks. We have now skilled eras of power, unity and religion in addition to seasons of weak point, trials and despair. Regardless of these challenges, we’ve remained as one, and nurtured our democracy to 21 unbroken years.


Nation constructing is a   journey and everybody has a job to play for us to reach safely in our desired vacation spot.  Right this moment, we’re confronted with quite a few challenges and we require the dedication of all residents to stabilize this nation. As a democrat, I consider that democracy stays one of the best platform for nation constructing, because it affords each citizen the chance to have a say on how our nation needs to be ruled.

I due to this fact urge us to make investments that may shore up the democratic beneficial properties and work in direction of constructing sturdy and virile establishments. We have to harness the greatness that lies inside our variety and the power of our inhabitants, to recreate and construct the Nigeria we want.  We should de-emphasize our fault traces and focus on the silver lining inside our lands.


Each nice nation is constructed on the patriotic sacrifices of its residents. We must always present love, unity and understanding in occasions of trials and by no means lose hope within the presence of despair. That is the spirit that’s required to construct our nation, to allow us stay within the land of our collective goals.


Right this moment Nigeria and the remainder of the world are going by way of a serious well being disaster, that has continued to threaten the soundness of states and their establishments in addition to the lives and livelihoods of residents. We mustn’t ever quit, regardless of the challenges we face in the present day. We must always not stay in despair of alternatives misplaced or goals deferred.


Allow us to seize the alternatives that this pandemic presents to recreate and construct a stronger nation. Our success as a nation lies within the fervency of our religion, the power of our unity and dedication to our nationwide creed: unity and religion, peace and progress. Allow us to work in solidarity to make sure that this nationwide creed doesn’t grow to be a mere slogan however a lived expertise for all.
