The Ambassador of Nigeria to Angola, Prof. Monique O. Ekpong (KSJi) has charged Nigerians to count the gains and not the losses as we mark the 62nd Independence of our great country Nigeria.
The Nigerian diplomat made the call to Nigerians through an Independence Day message signed by her Media Assistant, Nelson NseAbasi.
Mrs Ekpong referred to the independence day celebration as a time to ‘count our gains as a people and not the losses’. According to her, ‘historically, this will be the last Independence Day Celebration with His Excellency, Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR) as President of Nigeria and research shows that when people celebrate the success of their leaders, it helps improve morale and strengthen their performance’, she noted that the gesture will spur the delivery of more democracy dividends in the remaining months.
Ambassador Ekpong sent her good wishes to President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigerians all over the world, she stated that as we forge ahead as a nation, especially in the light of the forthcoming 2023 general elections, let us join hands and hearts with the government to build a nation where peace and justice shall reign’.
