having pleasure to have an opportunity to wish you,
"A very Happy 55th Independence day".
On 1 October 1960, Nigeria
gained its independence from the United Kingdom
. If we go through the history of Nigeria
and the significance of Independence Day
lies in the fact that it binds all the Nigerians into one chord not only within the country but also in the far off lands. Nigeria is known to be One of the Oldest Locations of Human Existence This was proved by the Evidences from archaeological discoveries have shown that there was a history of human existence in Nigeria which has been dated to as far back as 9000 BC. Historical evidences indicate that the earlier inhabitants of Nigeria were thought to have the Nok tribe followed by Kanuri, Hausa and Fulani who migrated to the country in the subsequent years. With the annexation of British in 1886, it became a British colony in the later years. After years of hard struggle and political turmoil Nigeria achieved independence. The vast landscapes of the country, stretching from the Obudu Hills of the southeast through the beaches in to the rainforest regions of the Lagos estuary the country has worthwhile natural splendors to explore. Culturally one of the most diverse countries of Africa, Nigeria is home to more than 250 linguistic ethnic groups as Yoruba, Hausa, Fulani and Igbo (A peculiar similarity between Nigeria and India). The folk music of Nigeria has gained tremendous boost with indigenous fusion giving it a new dimension in the past few years. Oil and the Mineral resources extensively contribute to the economic upsurge of the Blessed country. Now Nigeria is the Most populous country of the African Continent What this means is that one in every 7 Africans is a Nigerian. Nigeria has become one of the Fastest growing economy of the world and the biggest Economy of Africa which is still growing with the rapid pace (a force to reckon with). It is also listed among the "Next Eleven
" economies set to become among the biggest in the world. With its abundant supply of natural resources, Cocoa, sugar cane, yams, maize, palm oil, groundnuts, coconuts, citrus fruits, pearl millet, Cassava along with a well-developed financial, legal, communications, transport sectors and stock exchange, which is the second largest in Africa. Nigeria is now having 4 Pharmaceutical Companies having WHO and cGMP certification and 2 are in line to achieve that Goal.
The Real Power of Nigeria can be assessed in the very odd condition like the 2014 ebola outbreak
, Nigeria was the first country to effectively contain and eliminate the Ebola threat that was ravaging three other countries in the West African region, as its unique method of contact tracing became an effective method later used by other countries, such as the United States, when Ebola threats were discovered.
This year's Independence day is even more important as Nigeria conducted a very peaceful election and very smooth transfer of Power from one Party to other. A true sign of the Maturity of Democracy and a lesson to be learned by the other African countries. The new Govt is now settling down and subsequent economic reforms are bound to place Nigeria on Growth track for achieving its Actual and full economic potential.
