Missing Suya? Fancy partying Naija style?
54 years ago on this very day Nigeria was granted its full independence under a constitution that provided for a parliamentary government and a substantial measure of self-government for the country’s three regions. If that means anything to you, or not we can assure you it’s a cause to celebrate. There’s no better way than to spend your day revelling in your culture no matter where you are.
As you’ve probably realised, the big celebrations will really be happening in Nigeria, the sound of fireworks, the delicious smell of Suya and the streets filled with the true beats of Africa. At this moment you might be feeling incredibly left out. But worry not, don’t book a ticket just yet. Here at Naija living we’ve got your back. We’ve put together a few things going on during this celebration period that will literally transport you back home.
