It has also been used to celebrate many historical figures and events around the world.
Some Nigerians that have been celebrated with a Doodle include: Buchi Emecheta, Sam Okwaraji, Christy Essien Igbokwe and Stella Adadevoh, the late Nigerian doctor who curtailed the spread of Ebola, among others.
Meanwhile, the serving overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, formerly known as Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare, has said that no nation can make considerable progress when mediocre people are at its helm of affairs.
The Cable reported that Bakare was speaking at The Platform, an annual conference organised by Covenant Christian Centre in Lagos, on Thursday, October 1.
Legit.ng gathered that the virtual event was hosted by Poju Oyemade, its convener, and in commemoration of the nation’s 60th independence anniversary.
