Independent Day anniversary will be low-key — Nigerian Govt

He said October 1 would be “a time for reflections…to think very deeply as a people and the journey forward.”⁣

Akume disclosed this to State House Correspondents after he emerged from a closed-door talk with Vice President Kashim Shettima, at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja. ⁣
“Independence is a historic event for any country and we Nigerians are no exemptions. ⁣

“We are fully prepared for celebrations and for obvious reasons, it is going to be low-key and we are wishing Nigerians the best of luck and I want to assure them that better days are coming and pretty soon too,” he noted.
