Here are some reactions after president Buhari made the call of unity.
"The worst season in our national lives is the era of Buhari led administration. Everyone who survive this government deserves an award of narrow escape from bondage, poverty, incessant killings and economic hardship. In my opinion, we are only celebrating failure at 61 as a nation. There cannot be independence without freedom of speech, justice, equal right, protection of lives and property of the people by the state as the core essence for social-contract and sustainable growth."
"We will always remember you as a man who once rule Nigeria and destroy economic growth and development in Nigeria and killings of thousands of innocent citizens may Lucifer keep your own apartment special for your punishment."
"PMB and many gallant Nigerian soldiers committed their lives for one Nigeria, and they have succeeded, we the rest of Nigerian will defend their success, and we will triumph the evils of separators."
Ogunboye Frontman Oluwole
"The birth of the Nigerian State is not Occasion for celebration, it’s a day on which victim of the evil empire should mourn."
"Nigeria is not working. And PMB has not come to make it work. Independent remembrance is annoying."
"Millions laid down their lives for the liberation of our country. Thousands gave up the ghost to enable us live the life we enjoy now. Happy Independence Day."
"Agent of disintegration, baba I hail. Nigeria has never been this divided. We now see ourselves vividly that we are from different regions, tribes and religions."
