On September 20, George Akume, secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), said this year’s independence anniversary celebration would be observed low key with no jamboree.
“We are fully prepared for celebration and for obvious reasons, it is going to be low-key, but we are wishing Nigerians the best of luck and we want to assure them that better days are coming.
