The Herald recalls Nigeria independently built her own country and government after regaining freedom from the British in 1960. Germany also fought for this power but the British were victorious. Even though some European customs still existed in the country, the call for Nigerian independence, which took place in the middle of the 20th century, strengthened Nigerians as separate nation, not a foreign colony.
Nigeria received the status of a ‘federal republic’ and adopted its constitution in 1963. At that time, Nnamdi Azikiwe became the first president.
Nigeria is an independent country and is on her way to a bright future.
