The Federal Government has said that the nation’s 60th independence anniversary celebration will be low-key.
Lai Mohammed, The Minister of Information and Culture, disclosed it while briefing journalists on Thursday, in Abuja, he said it is not unconnected from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The 60th independence anniversary celebration will be low-key just as the President has already announced. This is not unconnected from the global COVID-19 pandemic which has forced some safety protocols on nations around the world,” he said.
The Minister said that the celebration will last for a period of one year and end September 31, 2021.
The theme of this year’s celebration is Togetherness.
Further explaining he said it doesn’t mean there will be daily activities between now and September 31 but there will be staggered events within the one-year period to commemorate Nigeria’s diamond jubilee anniversary.
The logo and theme which will be used in the celebration the Diamond Jubilee was unveiled last week by President Muhammadu Buhari during the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
