Our beautiful country has entered a new year, NIGERIA at 61, which is a positive thing, and every October 1st is a public holiday to commemorate the new era. A celebration was held at Eagle Square which was attended by President Buhari, Osinbajo, and other well-meaning Nigerians to mark the 61st anniversary of our country.
It is interesting to know that more than 10 other countries worldwide are celebrating a fruitful independence day in the same month as our motherland, Nigeria, and among all these countries, there is only one Muslim country.
