    Born some 58 years ago, her birth was received with joy, high hopes and expectations. She was born into a family blessed with abundant resources both human and material. Welcome to Nigeria.

    For Nigeria and Nigerians, October 1, of every year has been sacrosanct since 1960. The reason is not far-fetched. It was the day Nigerian gained its independence from Britain. The day has become a blueprint for subsequent independence celebrations.

    As tradition demands, the day usually starts with a national broadcast by the Head of State (as was obtainable under the military regime) or the president (under the democratic dispensation). This is afterwards followed by a march past by the armed forces, paramilitary institutions and students. Cultural activities are also observed.

    Unlike Europe, Britain, and to some extent America, Nigeria has been able to hold on to its freedom to this day. I hope Nigerians will continue to keep their freedom, and never really buy into democracy, socialism, appeasement, legalese, and the other western poisons.
