Sen. Anyim Pius Anyim (GCON), Secretary to the Government of the Federation remarked concerning 
the centenary celebration:


On January 1, 1914, the Northern and Southern Protectorates were formally amalgamated into one

country, establishing modern day Nigeria. January 1, 2014 marks one hundred years of our union as

a nation. There are not many nations privileged to have such longevity. Notwithstanding our struggles

and challenges, this is an epoch deserving of a celebration by the Nigerian people. It offers us a unique

opportunity to focus on our country, its history, people, achievements and aspirations for the next century.

We do not take our nationhood for granted. There is, however, an advantage in being a melting pot of

cultures, of multiple ethnic nationalities and different religions, brought together in a united and viral entity.

Our geographical landscape, with its varied flora and fauna and rich natural resources derives the blessing of

our being.  Nigeria has indeed come a long way. Our story is one of admirable and remarkable progress. Nigeria
attained independence, fought and survived a civil war and is currently committed to building a stable nation,

with a strong economy.

We are blessed with a vibrant population and our democracy is maturing. This centenary celebration presents us

an opportunity to count our blessings as a nation, celebrate our dexterity and resilience as a people and resolve to

launch into the next century with renewed determination, hope and expectations.

HAPPY CENTENARY, NIGERIA

Congratulations!
