Nigeria’s 63rd Independence Anniversary: FG Sets to Have a Quiet Celebration

Nigeria's 63rd Independence Anniversary

The Federal Government (FG) has disclosed its plans for a subdued celebration of Nigeria’s 63rd independence anniversary, scheduled for October 1, 2023. During a press conference in Abuja, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), George Akume, revealed that the FG will not be inviting any world leaders for the event, aligning with its decision to keep the celebration low-key.

Akume emphasized that the choice for a low-key celebration was made considering the prevailing economic challenges. He stated, “Low-key celebration has nothing to do with whether we are not doing well. Economic times are hard; we are looking at it not just at the national level but also as a family.”

The theme for the 63rd anniversary celebration is “Nigeria @ 63: Renewed Hope for Unity & Prosperity.”

Akume underscored the importance of national interest and the collective desire of Nigerians to live in a peaceful, united, and prosperous nation despite its diversity. He stressed that national unity, prosperity, and security are vital for the nation’s progress and emphasized that the federal government is committed to safeguarding these national interests.

The SGF acknowledged that the 63rd independence anniversary celebration is significant, given Nigeria’s unbroken democratic record since 1999 and the seamless, peaceful presidential transition between governments. He praised Nigerians for embracing democracy as the best form of governance, emphasizing that it allows citizens to actively participate in the country’s affairs.

Akume acknowledged the economic challenges Nigerians have faced, especially since the removal of the fuel subsidy and the impact of the global economic downturn. He assured that the government is working diligently to provide palliatives to mitigate these challenges, including the provision of buses to ease transportation difficulties.

The FG’s “Renewed Hope Agenda” is designed to enhance food security, eradicate poverty, improve security, foster economic growth, create jobs, ensure access to capital, uphold the rule of law, and combat corruption.

The upcoming celebration includes several events such as an anniversary symposium/public lecture, lectures, prayers, and a military parade, which will collectively mark Nigeria’s 63rd independence anniversary.
