Ahead of Nigeria’s 61st Independence day celebration, the Federal Government has reeled out events to mark the historic day.

At the World Press Conference in Abuja, the nation’s capital, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Ifeoma Anyanwutaku, said the briefing will signpost the commencement of activities for this year’s celebration.

” As you are aware, we are just about rounding off activities marking the 60th year-long Diamond Jubilee Independence Anniversary celebration, which will terminate 30th September, 2021″. 

” In other words, the activities of the 60th independence anniversary have been arranged to dovetail into that of the 61st Independence Anniversary”, he said
