Independence Day in Nigeria

Independence Day is an official national holiday in Nigeria, celebrated on the first of October. It marks Nigeria’s proclamation of independence from British rule on 1 October 1960.

In New York, Nigeria’s Independence Day has been marked by celebrations in the streets since 1991. The celebrations in the U.S. are the largest celebrations outside of Nigeria, and usually attract around 75,000 people every year.

Meanwhile, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, Nigeria’s Vice President says God has taken away the protection of the enemies of Nigeria.

The professor of Law said on Sunday at the 59th Independence Day Church Service at the National Christian Centre, Abuja that: “God had promised, through the mouths of His trusted prophets, that He is giving us a New Nigeria! May I announce to you today that God is ready to take us into the Promised Land, the new Nigeria!”
