The importance of Independence Day in Nigeria comes with the fact that it brings all the Nigerians together in one accord not only within the country but also in the far off lands of the world.

As we Celebrate Nigeria at 55 years, we pray for our leaders to be upright and lead us right. We pray for peace in the North and other regions. We also pray for a corrupt-free Government. Remember, to build a better Nigeria, it has to begin with you and me. Let us learn to love each other and live in peace and harmony. We should also support the government and work hand in hand to make Nigeria a better place.
