Happy Independence day Nigeria

Independence Day is a National day in Nigeria and one of the best Nigerian holidays, 
The Nigerian Independence Day 2018 is stipulated to hold on Monday, October 1st as compared to the very first Nigerian Independence Day in 1960.
As you’ll recall, the Independence Day 2017 was held on Monday 2nd, October 2017. 
Every October 1st, which is Nigeria Independence Day, would always be a red letter day on the minds of Nigerians both old and young. As it’s a remarkable day in the history of Nigeria.

Irrespective of our different ethnic groups and tribes, there’s always a blended celebration as those home and abroad unitedly celebrate this historic period of Nigeria’s Journey as a great Nation.
Nigerian Independence Day History
Prior to this day, Nigeria was a colony of Great Britain, until it proclaimed her independence on October 1, 1960.

The combination of the southern Nigeria protectorate and the northern Nigeria protectorate in 1914, gave birth to the colony and protectorate of Nigeria, which has borders in the now Nigeria.

Unfortunately, the end of British rule came forth, as they don’t have the choice other than to grant Nigeria her independence.

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

Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause
Guide our leaders right
Help our youth and truth to know
In love and honesty to grow
And living just and true
Great lofty heights attain
To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign.

The Old National Anthem
Nigeria we hail thee
Our own dear native land
Though tribe and tongue may differ
In brotherhood we stand
Nigerians all and proud to serve Our sovereign motherland

Our flag shall be a symbol
That truth and justice reign
In peace or battle honour
And this we count as gain
To pass unto our children
A banner without stain

O God of all creation
Grant this our one request
Help us to build a nation
Where no man is oppressed
And so with peace and plenty
Nigeria may be blessed

The National Pledge
I pledge to Nigeria, my country
To be faithful, loyal, and honest
To serve Nigeria with all my strength
To defend her unity
And uphold her honor and glory
So help me God.
