President Buhari Reveals Nigeria Is The Most Prosperous Black Nation In The World

Unveiling the theme and logo for the commemorative activities to celebrate 60 years of independence, President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday described Nigeria, Africa’s largest economy, as the most prosperous black nation in the world.

Buhari said this at the unveiling of the theme and logo for Nigeria at 60 anniversary, themed, “Together.”

The logo and theme were projected and unveiled virtually on the 12 by 20 feet screen at the Council Chambers, before the commencement of the e-Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by President Buhari.

The President performed the exercise in the presence of some cabinet ministers and other members of the council who joined the meeting online.

”The task history has saddled me with today is to proclaim a theme that will keep us united, help us forge ahead and unveil a logo that will form the critical pillars which our 11-month modest commemorative activities would rest on.

”Celebrating sixty years of independence really calls for pomp, but the global COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced all nations in the world to think and act differently, has also foisted on us the imperative of a low-keyed celebration.

”Operating within the limitations placed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we created an internet challenge for Nigerians to make a choice from a set of four pre-selected logos that would appropriately define the theme.

Of these four options, Nigerians from all walks of life participated in making a choice and I am happy to let you know that the logo I would be unveiling is a product of choice from the Nigerian people,” President Buhari said.
