The Chairman of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba has congratulated Nigerians on the country’s 58th independence anniversary celebration.
The Chairman, in a statement released by his Special Assistant Communications, Clara Braide, reflected on the sacrifices and broadmindedness of Nigeria’s founding fathers, noting that the efforts of past heroes shall not be in vain as Nigeria remains one indivisible entity, on the path to greatness.
According to him, ” I heartily salute all the people of our great country Nigeria, as we celebrate the 58th anniversary of the nation’s independence.
“As we mark this historic event, let us passionately reflect on the memory of our broad-minded and visionary founding fathers who labored day and night to secure our freedom on October 1, 1960, thus creating for us a sovereign nation under God.”
Ndoma-Egba who noted that Nigeria has remained together despite challenges, also said that the nation has indeed travailed and triumphed over several challenges and have remained united, resolute and undaunted.
“The hiccups in recent times are normal occurrences in a democratic, developing nation and would naturally be overcome because democracy has self-correcting mechanisms.
“Like millions of Nigerians, I believe that Nigeria will continue to witness transformation in every sector, remain politically and economically strong and indivisible in line with the principles of our founding fathers.” Egba said.
He urged all Nigerians to continue to join hands with President Mohammadu Buhari’s government in its effort to peacefully lift the nation to higher heights of greatness and assured that Nigeria will continue to be great and remain the giant of Africa.
