As Nigeria celebrates her independence on October 1st, the Federal Government has announced that the 2023 Independence Day celebration will be unfussy.
This was disclosed on Wednesday in Abuja by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume, after a closed-door meeting with Vice President, Kashim Shettima.
Akume noted that the Government said the event will not feature the usual ceremony at the Eagle Square, Abuja.
“This is going to be low key; we are not going on fantastic jamboree at the Eagle Square and other locations,” the SGF said
According to him, this year’s event would be a time for reflections to Nigerians to think very deeply and the journey forward in the country.
“Independence is a very historic event for any country and we Nigerians are no exemptions.
“We are fully prepared for celebrations and for obvious reasons, it 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.
