President Muhammadu Buhari reveals 60th independence logo

According to the tweet made by TheCableng on its official handle, President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed the 60th independence logo during the virtual Federal Executive Council meeting, which was supervised by the President.

Speaking on Wednesday during the revealing of the theme and logo for the country’s 60th independence anniversary in Abuja, President Muhammadu Buhari said the anniversary calls for celebrations because it shows the unity of Nigerians over the years despite their differences.

Femi Adesina, presidential spokesperson, said the revealing was done at the council chambers before the commencement of the virtual federal executive council (FEC) meeting presided over by the president.

“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 our 11-month modest commemorative activities would rest on,” President Muhammadu Buhari said.

“Celebrating sixty years of independence really calls for pomp, but the global COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced all nations in the world to think and act differently, has also foisted on us the imperative of a low-keyed celebration.

“Operating within the limitations placed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we created an internet challenge for Nigerians to make a choice from a set of four pre-selected logos that would appropriately define the theme.

“Of these four options, Nigerians from all walks of life participated in making a choice and I am happy to let you know that the logo I would be unveiling is a product of choice from the Nigerian people.

“The selected option depicts our togetherness, a country of over 200 million people whose natural talent, grit and passion glitter like the precious DIAMOND we are. This, to me, is a special appreciation to our most precious asset – our people. Everywhere you go, Nigerians are sparkling like diamonds in the pack, whether in academia, business, innovation, music, movie, entertainment, fashion and culture.

“Furthermore, the neatly encrusted Diamond on the Nigerian Map symbolizes our age of treasure, the worth of the Nigerian people with our sparkle to the admiration of the world. All these properties make us unarguably the most prosperous black nation in the world and Africa’s largest economy. This shall be a befitting tribute to the struggles of our heroes past.”
