President Muhammadu Buhari is already getting set to celebrate Nigeria’s 58th Independence Day and he has noted that it will be an explosive celebration this year.
This was disclosed by the permanent secretary and chairman, 2018 Independence Day central organising committee in a press briefing in Abuja.
He noted that it had been several years since Nigeria had a full blown traditional independence celebration, hence the big plans for this year’s event.
According to him, October 1,1960 occupies a very important place of pride in the political history of Nigeria and the government has agreed that we can no longer downplay “the labours of our heroes past”.
He said some of the activities will involve the movement of military hardware as well as flight manoeuvres by fast air force jets and helicopters within the FCT airspace.
“Members of the public are kindly advised not to panic at the sight and sound of these personnel and equipment movement by the military and other paramilitary agencies but go about their normal activities as usual,” he added.
Stating that the administration will not leave any stone unturned in its effort to secure Nigeria and have a hitch-free independence day celebration, he said the government is working hard to ensure that there are no security breaches.
The President will address the nation on October 1st to mark the Independence celebration.
