Former federal lawmaker Patrick Obahiagbon, also known as Igodomigodo, has congratulated Nigerians as Africa’s most populous country marks its 59th Independence Day Anniversary on October 1st.
Concise News reports that Obahiagbon, known for using hilarious words when engaged in social and political discourse, in his goodwill message to Nigerians, describes Nigeria’s Independence Day Anniversary as “59th autarky.”
“As we celebrate Nigeria’s autarky at 59, we must reflect on the urgent need to pull Nigeria out of its marshmallow of centrifugal excrescences that currently weighs against our centripetal agglutinants (sic),” the former Chief of Staff to ex-governor Adams Oshiomhole posted on his offciial Facebook page.
“The Sisyphean challenge to the pax nigeriana of our dreams, more than anything else, still remains our maladorous (sic), putrescent, frankeinstous and opprobrious drift into a cocoon of ethnocentric chauvinism and syphilitic parapoism.
“Until we extirpate the hereinbefore mentioned gorgon medusa, all efforts at nation building amounts to vacuous sciamachy.
“Best wishes Nigeria.”
President Buhari addresses the nation
President Muhammadu Buhari, in his nationwide broadcast to mark Nigeria’s 59th Independence Anniversary, on Tuesday, directed the Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning to release N600 billion for Capital Expenditure in the next three months.
According to Buhari, he gave the directive because of his administration’s desire to significantly increase investments in the nation’s critical infrastructure.
The president also talked about security, economy and anti-corruption in his nationwide broadcast.
“Good Governance and Economic Development cannot be sustained without an enabling environment of peace and security. In the last four years, we have combatted the terrorist scourge of Boko Haram. We owe a debt of gratitude to our gallant men and women in arms, through whose efforts we have been able to achieve the present results. We are also grateful to our neighbours and allies – within the region and across the world – who have supported us on this front,” part of the president’s speech read.
