Nigeria @ 59: We are getting better – Uche Elendu, actress
October 1, 2019 will mark 59 years since Nigeria gained its independence from the British in 1960
As drums roll in preparation for 59th Independence Day Anniversary, Nigerian celebrities bare their thoughts to Allure Vanguard on what is worth celebrating in the country.
We are getting better – Uche Elendu, actress
Nigeria is not worth celebrating due to the economic hardship and lack of employment her people face. But even in darkness, I like to see or create my own light, so I celebrate my great country Nigeria for being able to stand and defy all prophecies of war and doom.
Power has improved but can be better. We also have well meaning Nigerians that have overlooked the sluggish nature of the government to fight for her citizens in diaspora. The likes of Chairman of Air Peace Nigeria that evacuated hundreds of Nigerians from Xenophobic Violence in South Africa at his own expense. That should have been the responsibility of the government but patriotic love is worth celebrating.
Nigeria has also conquered the days of fuel subsidy which has given rise to the availability of fuel owing to the interaction between demand and supply.
Long Live Nigeria. Happy Independence day in advance.
