Today is a remarkable day in the existence of the nation called Nigeria as it marks its 60th Independence Celebration across the country. Nigeria gained independence 1st October, 1960 having being ruled by the British Colony for years through Indirect Rule System by Queen Elizabeth. To mark this remarkable historical event, the country observes every October 1st as a public holiday.
As the country celebrates Independence Day today, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria took to his verified Tweeter handle to drop an independence tweet that reads as follows, “Democracy, the world over and as I am pursuing in Nigeria, recognizes the power of the people. However, if some constituencies choose to bargain off their power, they should be prepared for denial of their rights.”
Ebuka, a lawyer, fashion lord, and the all well known host of the Big Brother Naija Reality TV show could not hold the feeling that the tweet deposited in him. To let the feeling out, he reacted thus, “I still don’t understand this bit”. His reaction was birthed by the perplexity that the message of the tweet created.
