It’s October 1st, a very special day in the history of Nigeria.
60 years ago today (on October 1, 1960), Nigeria became a formally independent federation, having gotten free from British colonial rule.
“Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause
Guide our leaders right
Help our youth the truth to know
In love and honesty to grow
And living just and true
Great lofty heights attain
To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign.”
