President Muhammadu Buhari says Nigeria is the most prosperous black Nation in the world with the largest economy in Africa.

He said this at the unveiling ceremony of the theme and logo for the nation’s 60th independence anniversary in Abuja today September 16, he said;

“Today, we stand on the threshold of history as we formally begin a series of activities commemorating Nigeria’s Diamond Anniversary. The task history has saddled me with today is to proclaim a theme that will keep us united, help us forge ahead and unveil a logo that will form the critical pillars which our 11-month modest commemorative activities would rest on.

“Celebrating sixty years of independence really calls for pomp, but the global COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced all nations in the world to think and act differently, has also foisted on us the imperative of a low-keyed celebration.

“Operating within the limitations placed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we created an internet challenge for Nigerians to make a choice from a set of four pre-selected logos that would appropriately define the theme.

“Of these four options, Nigerians from all walks of life participated in making a choice and I am happy to let you know that the logo I would be unveiling is a product of choice from the Nigerian people.

“The selected option depicts our togetherness, a country of over 200 million people whose natural talent, grit and passion glitter like the precious DIAMOND we are. This, to me, is a special appreciation to our most precious asset – our people. Everywhere you go, Nigerians are sparkling like diamonds in the pack, whether in academia, business, innovation, music, movie, entertainment, fashion and culture.

“Furthermore, the neatly encrusted Diamond on the Nigerian Map symbolizes our age of treasure, the worth of the Nigerian people with our sparkle to the admiration of the world. All these properties make us unarguably the most prosperous black nation in the world and Africa’s largest economy. This shall be a befitting tribute to the struggles of our heroes past.”


  1. For sure base on fact nigerian go out side their country to develop other..Beautiful pictures are developed from negatives in a dark place, So if you see dark nation in your life be reassured that a beautiful place is back again with is nigeria.

  2. Where is Nigeria prosperous? in this our country its only when Nigeria politicians die you know how educated they were but when they are still alive you wont know how educated they are because some of them do behave like stack illiterate. Nigeria has the largest economy but we dont have good management. We are prosperous in borrowing loan and looting

  3. Happy 60th independence to Nigeria in advance.
    Nigeria is indeed blessed with abundant natural resources but the greed of our political leaders has not allowed this nation soar to the height of its potentials.
    Calling this nation the most prosperous black nation in the world considering it’s present state is over-hyped.

    1. Congratulations to nigerians in advance. I’m always supprised when the current leaders are talking about heros of our past not to be in vain, those heros serve Nigeria with all their strength but the present one are just after the money they are not ready to make Nigeria better place to live for everyone. For Nigeria to come far and celebrate 60th birthday, we ought to have go beyond where we are today. Our leaders should think on how to move Nigeria forward and let us exhibit that we are the most prosperous black in Africa.

  4. There’s no dispute about that, we are most properous black Africa in all Africa but our leaders lack the charismatic of being a leader and play a leadership role, those who fought for our independent have tried there best but the current leaders do not value Nigeria and Nigerians, selfishness, greediness and corruption have always been there character that they do exhibit, what ought to belongs to millions of people they prefer it to be there own alone. Happy anniversary in advance.

  5. What is the anniversary all about. At 60 years, Nigeria can not boast of any meaningful progress. They might be prosperous as president Muhammadu Buhari has said but there is nothing to show for this

  6. See our yeye President, I don’t even know what the anniversary all about. See Mr President we are very far away from the remaining African countries. They are 100% better than us in terms of economy and leadership. In Nigeria today you are number one of bad leader why others follow.
