NIGERIA'S AFFAIRS

 54th Independence Anniversary: Nigerians speak
By Nan

A cross section of Nigerians on Wednesday said Nigeria's 54th Independence anniversary was worth celebrating because “we are still a united nation” in spite of the numerous challenges. Other citizens, however, said that the atmosphere was not ripe for celebration due to insurgency in parts of the country and the Chibok girls, among other challenges. 




A PDP member in Kogi, Mr Adelodun Obaseki, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lokoja that “Nigerians have every reason to celebrate as in spite of all odds, God has always been by our side”.

Obaseki pointed out the level of developments that the country had experienced in the last few decades as some of the reasons for celebration.

He noted that the PDP had proved itself to be a party that all Nigerians should embrace through its infrastructural developments in all aspects of national life through the transformation agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan.

Another resident, Mr Salaudeen Mohammed, however, said that there was need for sobriety because of the security challenges threatening the country.

“What are we celebrating when over 200 Chibok girls are still being held captive by insurgents in the North, with killings and kidnappings in the South?”he asked.

He noted that the nation still suffered epileptic power supply, massive youth unemployment, corruption and persistent strikes.

“Just give me a reason why we should celebrate when at 54, Nigeria still depends on importation of domestic goods, building materials and many other things,”said Salaudeen.

He, however, advised political leaders and governments at all levels to shun corruption and work for the betterment of our nation.

A taxi driver, Mr Samuel Elian, lamented the poor condition of the state and federal roads across the country, saying it was a cause for concern.

He enjoined the various tiers of government to do the needful to restore people's confidence in the polity by delivering the benefits of independence.

Aprivate legal practitioner in Abuja, Mr Ibrahim Tola, called for the construction of quality road network across the country and the provision of educational facilities, healthcare service, agricultural inputs and improved electricity supply, among other basic social amenities and infrastructure.

Acivil servant, Mrs Eletta Awoniyi, said Nigeria should celebrate the sustained unity of the nation at 54 in spite of the various ills bedevilling the country.

She urged Nigerians to set aside religious, political and tribal differences, and embrace unity and peace which were needed to surmount the security challenges facing the country.

“Nigerians should join hands in the spirit of oneness and support our President Goodluck Jonathan in the fight against the enemies of our nation,” she urged.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
