Buhari Unveils 60th Independence Logo, Says ‘Nigeria Most Prosperous Black Nation In The World’
According to a statement by Femi Adesina, presidential spokesperson, Buhari said the forthcoming 60th anniversary calls for celebrations because it shows the unity of Nigerians over the years despite their differences.
“The task history has saddled me with today is to proclaim a theme that will keep us united, help us forge ahead and unveil a logo that will form the critical pillars which our 11-month modest commemorative activities would rest on.
“Celebrating sixty years of independence really calls for pomp, but the global COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced all nations in the world to think and act differently, has also foisted on us the imperative of a low-keyed celebration.
“Operating within the limitations placed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we created an internet challenge for Nigerians to make a choice from a set of four pre-selected logos that would appropriately define the theme.
“Of these four options, Nigerians from all walks of life participated in making a choice and I am happy to let you know that the logo I would be unveiling is a product of choice from the Nigerian people.
“The selected option depicts our togetherness, a country of over 200 million people whose natural talent, grit and passion glitter like the precious DIAMOND we are. This, to me, is a special appreciation to our most precious asset – our people.
“Furthermore, the neatly encrusted Diamond on the Nigerian Map symbolizes our age of treasure, the worth of the Nigerian people with our sparkle to the admiration of the world.
“All these properties make us unarguably the most prosperous black nation in the world and Africa’s largest economy. This shall be a befitting tribute to the struggles of our heroes past.”
This is coming barely 24 hours after President Buhari said Nigeria would have been in trouble by now if his government hadn’t forced unemployed Nigerians to go into agriculture.
