MedPro International Celebrates Nigeria Independence Day

MedPro International joins Nigeria in celebrating 60 years of national independence on Monday, October 1. The national holiday marks the end of British colonial rule, which began in the late 1850s. The President’s address to the nation kicks off festivities throughout the country’s agencies, including the Nigerian Armed Forces, the Nigerian Police Force, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the workforce and national educational services. Primary and secondary schools perform ceremonial processions at state capitals and local government areas and street celebrations are held with people wearing the national green-white-green colors.

Nigeria’s flag is a vertical bicolor triband of green, white, and green. The two green stripes represent the country’s wealth, and the white represents peace. The flag was designed in 1959 and officially adopted when the country gained independence.
