This year on National Day, Nigeria celebrates 56 years of independence. Annual celebrations usually start with the Presidentâ€™s speech and continue with patriotic parades and festivities. In Nigeria and all over the world, people host parties festooned with green and white flags, play games, and enjoy traditional, home-cooked foods.
Todayâ€™s Doodle showcases sectors that Nigeria is developing and takes great pride in, such as agriculture, science, literature, engineering, and culture including Naija music and the Nollywood industry. Young people are key to the countryâ€™s future and are shown here celebrating in patriotic green and white fashions.
Happy IndependenceÂ Day, Nigeria!
