The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has unveiled ‘Nigeria At 60’ anniversary logo ahead of the nation’s 60th Independence Day celebration on October 1st.
The Nigeria at 60 Anniversary Logo was unveiled before the commencement of the virtual Federal Executive Council (FEC) Meeting at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Wednesday, 16th September 2020 by President Buhari.
The unveiling was witnessed by several Federal ministers and the vice president, Yemi Osinbajo.
Some of the ministers at the meeting includes the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola; Minister of Information and Culture, Rauf Aregbesola; Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, among others.
Speaking at the unveiling ceremony, the President said,
Today we stand on the threshold of history as we formally begin a series of activities commemorating Nigeria’s Diamond Anniversary.
The task history has saddled me with today is to proclaim a theme that will keep us united, help us forge ahead and unveil a logo that will form the critical pillars, which are eleven months modest commemoration activities will rest on.
Celebrating 60 years of independence really calls for pomp and pageantry, but the global COVID-19 Pandemic, which has forced all nations in the world to think and act differently, has also forced on us the imperative of a low-keyed celebration.
The Federal Government had earlier in September called on Nigerians to submit creative ideas that can brand the diamond jubilee anniversary, themed “Together at 60”.
