63rd Independence celebration: ‘Nigeria has capacity to be pride of human race’ – APC chieftain

By Stanley Nwanosike

Enugu, Sept. 28, 2023 (NAN) Chief Hycienth Ngwu, former South-East Publicity Secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), says Nigeria has the capacity to be the pride of the human race.

Ngwu, a founding member of the APC, said this on Thursday in Enugu to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) while reflecting on the nation’s 63rd Independence Anniversary and the prospect of a great nation.

NAN recalls that Nigeria, as a nation, celebrates her Independence Anniversary yearly on Oct. 1.

He said, “With the right and positive mindset from our politicians, civil servants, professionals, artisans, and indeed all Nigerians, our country will be the pride of the human race.

“I have no doubt on this conviction as we have produced the best and finest minds in all spheres of life and they are contributing immensely to human and socio-economic development all over the World.”

The APC stalwart called on all Nigerians to join hands with the APC focused national leadership and President Bola Tinubu to bring about the needed transformation to move the nation forward.

“As individuals and corporate entities, we must utilise the diverse potentials in our human and material resources to grow Nigeria economically, politically, culturally and socially.

“We are a blessed nation. I am convinced about that too,” he said.

On the reason to celebrate the anniversary from the colonialist, Ngwu noted that there was no gain-saying the fact that every being (human) appreciates being free to make own political, economic and social decisions.

According to him, this can only be guaranteed if one is independent.

‘So, if we truly understand this, then we have every reason to celebrate the day we got our independence.

“Recognising the value of authority inherent in independence is worth thanking God and our liberators from colonial domination.

“There could be nothing more cherished than this gift of independence,” he added. (NAN)
