Comrade Abba Moro

For those Nigerians who like to throw gigs at the slightest opportunity, and who might have been making big plans for the forthcoming independence day, well as for the Federal Government, the nation’s 52nd independence day anniversary celebration will be low-key in line with current economic realities around the world and the mood of the nation.

This was made known by the Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro in Abuja while unfolding the programmes lined up for the anniversary celebration on October 1. The government has however said that Nigerians should expect a more grandiose celebration of the centenary anniversary in 2014.

According to the minister, “The world today is troubled; there are cries of infrastructure decay in Nigeria and insecurity. Rather than commit money into celebration, we will rather use it for the development of the country, it will be too immature to embark on flamboyant activities while there are large number of unemployed youths in the country.”

How thoughtful of the government. We do not need a soothsayer to tell us that, with the current state of the country – economic crises abroad or not – there is nothing to celebrate elaborately. So, as we observe this year’s Independence Day, Nigerians should work towards keeping it sane and modest.
