Nigerian Independence Day

I want to wish my fellow Nigerians or lovers of Nigeria a Happy Independence day! I know today is a day of joy and to reflect how far we have come as a nation. 54 years ago we broke free from British rule to start anew. It saddens me that I can honestly say I love my country although I am not always proud of her. Don't get me wrong, we have come a long way as a whole although there is still a lot more we have to do. I am lucky to call Nigeria my home and I keep her constantly in my prayers for a better and brighter tomorrow! 

Arise, O compatriots, Nigeria's call obey
To serve our fatherland
With love and strength and faith
The labour of our heroes past
Shall never be in vain
To serve with heart and might
One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.
