Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that today is a day Nigerians will never forget as it reminds them of gaining freedom from their colonial masters. They say, “With age comes wisdom”, but can the same be said for Nigeria, a country which gained her independence 60 years ago and is still struggling to find her feet.

For a number of Nigerians, October 1 means nothing and is not worth celebrating. This is not surprising as things seem to be getting worse.

If you ask some people, they will tell you Nigeria can never get better and if they get the opportunity to leave to another country, they would do so gladly. Some people are of the opinion that the nation is at a standstill, for some others, the nation is in reverse mode.

Legit.ng also reported that President Muhammadu Buhari kickstarted the Independence Day celebration with the presidential broadcast addressing the citizens. You can read the full speech here.
