President Muhammadu Buhari has unveiled a Logo to kick start the Diamond Anniversary of Nigeria’s independence Celebration.

The unveiling of the logo by the president was held shortly before the commencement of the 15th virtual meeting of the Federal Executive Council -FEC at the State House, Abuja on Wednesday.

President Buhari described the logo as a product of choice from Nigerians who participated in the selection process.

He said that the Diamond Anniversary would be a low key in view of the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic.

“Celebrating 60 years of independence really calls for pomp and pageantry, but the global COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced all nations to think and act differently, has also forced on us the imperative of a low-keyed celebration”

The President said as the nation celebrate her anniversary, this government will work towards greater inclusiveness and look forward to the participation of all Nigerians.

“Everywhere you go, Nigerians are sparkling like diamonds: be it in Academia, Culture, President Buhari said at the unveiling.

In his remarks, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, who is also the Chairman of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Nigeria’s 60th Anniversary Celebration, said the unveiling of the logo marks the official take-off of Nigeria’s 60th anniversary.
