Sightings: Nigeria’s 52nd Independence Anniversary Celebration in Pictures

Although it was a low-key celebration for Nigerians yesterday, the 52nd anniversary of Nigeria’s Independence was celebrated all the same. This would make it the second year in a row that the Independence celebrations would be shifted from Eagle’s Square, to the Presidential Villa in Aso Rock for security reasons.

Mr President and his security team are afraid that Boko Haram, an Islamic sect of terrorists may spring a surprise attack on them.

In the wake of all the vices in my country, I choose to ignore all the pains and hardships they have caused us for a moment and celebrate where God has brought us thus far, as a country and as a nation.

Please view some photos capturing the highlights of yesterday’s Independence celebrations.

God bless Nigeria.
