Happy Nigerian Independence Day 2019 – Latest Wishes, Images, Messages, Quotes, Pictures, Greetings, Photos, SMS, Pic & Wallpaper HD! Nigerian Independence Day is an official national holiday in Nigeria, which is celebrated on the first of October. It marks Nigeria’s proclamation of independence from British rule on 1 October 1960.
According to Wikipedia, in 1914, the Southern Nigeria Protectorate was combined with the Northern Nigeria Protectorate to create the Colony and Protectorate of Nigeria, which has the borders of modern day Nigeria. By the late 1950s, the call for independence of territories in Africa and the decline of the British Empire led to the country being granted independence on 1 October 1960 as the Federation of Nigeria. Three years later, the constitution was amended and the country was declared the Federal Republic of Nigeria with Nnamdi Azikiwe, previously Governor-General, as the first President.
Nigeria Independence Day Wishes, Messages, Quotes, Greetings, Saying & Status:
Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, and the spirit of men
And so it must be daily earned and refreshed
Else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots,
It will wither and die. HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY
And I’m proud to be a Nigerian,
Where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died,
Who gave that right to me?
Let every patriot be honored;
Don’t let politics get in the way.
Without them, freedom would have died;
What they did, we can’t repay.
