On January 1st 1914, Nigeria’s journey to nationhood commenced when the Northern and Southern Protectorates were amalgamated into one country by the colonial authorities.
As Nigeria celebrates 100 years - we are celebrating a journey underlined by a determination to excel and remain united as a strong indivisible entity. The Federal Government of Nigeria has directed that the celebrations be brought to a close in February 2014, with a grand ceremony, telling our unique story to the world.
This story would feature state of the art technology, props and choreography on a canvass dominated by a unique stage, custom built to mirror our nation’s geography. it would be a fascinating night of history and spectacle, ending in a blazing display of fireworks.
