Independence Day in Nigeria

Happy #Independent Day Nigeria

Nigeria gained independence on October 1, 1960 through constitutions that were legislated by the British government. The new Constitution established a federal government system with an elected Prime Minister and a ceremonial head of staff.


For many people in the country, this signals a time of joy and happiness. Even those who are not pleased with the recent developments in the nation always see every Independence Day as another hopeful period that signals a new beginning, a fresh start for the country. It would seem that it is not just the populace in Nigeria that share in the hope that October 1 brings. Several firms and international body also nurse the joy and excitement that comes with Independence Day.

Nigeria, an African country on the Gulf of Guinea, has many natural landmarks and wildlife reserves. Protected areas such as Cross River National Park and Yankari National Park have waterfalls, dense rainforest, savanna and rare primate habitats. One of the most recognizable sites is Zuma Rock, a 725m-tall monolith outside the capital of Abuja that’s pictured on the national currency.
