Excerpts:Let’s go back in time. Capture the euphoria that greeted our independence.
It was wonderful, everybody was happy. Those who had no money had to borrow money to buy new clothes. Everybody came in new apparel and you could see the joy, the smiles, not pretended smiles, genuine smiles coming from their hearts. And you had parties made in every nook and cranny of the country. Some old…who didn’t know anything about governance were involved, everybody. I don’t think Nigeria will ever have any moment like the day of independence of 1960. It was a wonderful moment.
