FG unveils Nigeria’s 60th anniversary logo

President Muhammadu Buhari has launched Nigeria’s 60th Anniversary Logo. He says the logo is a product of choice from Nigerians who participated in the selection process.

According to the president, celebrating 60 years of independence really calls for ceremony, but the global Covid-19 pandemic, which has forced all nations to think and act differently, has also forced on Federal Government the imperative of a low-keyed celebration.

“Operating within the limitations placed by the Covid-19 pandemic, we created an internet challenge for Nigerians to make a choice from a set of four pre-selected logos that will appropriately define theme.

“Of these four options, Nigerians from all walks of life participated in making a choice and I’m happy to let you know that the logo I will be unveiling is a product of choice from the Nigerian people,” he said.

The president continued: “I’m informed that the selected option depicts our togetherness; a country of over 200 million people, whose natural talents, grits and passion glitter like the precious diamond we are.

“As we celebrate this anniversary, this government will work towards greater inclusiveness and look forward to the participation of all Nigerians.’’

Also speaking during the unveiling ceremony, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, who doubles as the Chairman of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Nigeria’s 60th Anniversary Celebration, noted that the unveiling of the logo marked the official take-off of Nigeria’s 60th anniversary.

Mr. Mustapha also highlighted how the committee arrived at the selection of the ‘Diamond Logo’ from 15 different possibilities designed by Nigerian companies.
