The Federal Government has declared Monday, October 3, 2016 as Public Holiday to mark Nigeria’s 56th Independence Anniversary.

The Honourable Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, while making the declaration on behalf of the Federal Government congratulates Nigerians at home and abroad on the commemoration of this year’s independence anniversary and assures them that Government is working assiduously to put in place various palliative measures to cushion the effects of the current economic challenges.

The Minister enjoins all Nigerians to continue to support President Muhammadu Buhari in his avowed determination to build a strong, virile and united country in line with the dream of the country’s founding fathers.

He wishes all Nigerians a happy anniversary celebration.

    Dear Sir,

    472 NAIRA = ONE DOLLAR ON THE STREETS

    President Buhari
    is only lucky to be ruling over a retarded populace which has
    no standard of living and will rather commit suicide than organize protests by
    themselves against impossible conditions of life in Nigeria today. For that
    fact President Buhari may just have acquired impunity to do as he wants, even
    if the country rots and worsens in consequence. Nigerians are too mentally
    retarded to be classified as part of global humanity. They have no sense of
    civil rights they have which override the powers of government. In their mental
    emptiness Nigerians are worse than slaves allowed to roam wretchedly on the
    face of the earth in bad odor; like bush rats.

      THE COUNTRY IS TOO SAD AND THE PEOPLE TOO TRAUMATIZED TO CELEBRATE INDEPENDENCE.
