GEJGLOThe patriotic support of eminent Nigerians and corporate organisations, who participated actively towards making the launch of Nigeria’s Centenary celebration a success, has been applauded by President Goodluck Jonathan.

Jonathan gave the commendation while delivering an address to kick off the Centenary anniversary celebration at the Banquet Hall, State House, Abuja, on Monday night.

Among the personalities singled out by the Federal Government for their immense contribution towards the success of the launch was Dr Mike Adenuga, chairman of Globacom Limited.

Others were the president of Dangote Group of Companies, Alhaji Aliko Dangote; Mr Bisi Onasanya and FirstBank Plc; Mr Tony Elumelu and Heirs Limited and Chief Cletus Ibeto and Ibeto Group of Companies.

“They have taken their pride of place and I urge all Nigerians to emulate them,” the president said.

President Jonathan made particular reference to a short documentary, entitled “The Future” and sponsored by Globacom Limited on the Centenary celebration, which featured the president interacting with Nigerian children representing different ethnic nationalities, and highlighted how strong Nigeria could be as a nation if we all worked together as one.

“In the documentary in which I appeared with the children, you will see that the children performed better than me. That means that our future is brighter,” President Jonathan said, amid applause from the gathering which included the Vice-President,  Alhaji Namadi Sambo; leadership of the National Assembly, past presidents of Nigeria, governors, ministers and members of the Diplomatic Corps, the wives of the president and vice-president and other dignitaries.

Globacom is the official Announcer of the Centenary Celebration.
