The 62nd anniversary of the country’s independence will be celebrated on Monday, October 3, 2022, according to a declaration made by the Federal Government on Wednesday.
Rauf Aregbesola, the interior minister, spoke on behalf of the federal government and congratulated all Nigerians on the celebration this year.
Aregbesola reaffirmed Nigeria’s preeminent position in the comity of nations and the greatness that lay ahead of the country in a statement signed by the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Shuaib Belgore. He also pledged that the government was committed to addressing all of the challenges the country was facing and bringing smiles to everyone’s faces.
“The world is facing serious economic and security issues, which have also had an impact on our nation,” he declared. I can assure you that the government will not forsake the people and that we will continue to meet all of these issues head-on with all the power at our disposal until relief comes.
“Nigeria is without a doubt the leading black nation in the world, Africa’s pride, and a beacon of hope because of its warmth, welcoming spirit, and love, as well as because of its untapped human capital and its wealth of land. We will become the greatest nation on earth if we can unite to realize our potential.
