St. Dominic College of Asia’s Nigerian students celebrate their country’s 56thIndependence Day from their colonizer, the United Kingdom, October 1 at SDCA Grounds.
In 1960, Nigeria gained independence from UK as a Commonwealth Realm.
It states that Nigeria is a sovereign state and UK can only have a connection with them in their own volition.
Their freedom from the European colonizer also ended the vulgar slavery.
This celebration has been a custom every year due to their increasing population in SDCA.
“I feel excited to be alive to witness this day and I am glad we’re growing.” Khadijat Jimohn, International Students Association Financial Secretary, said.
The program ended with the symbolical slicing of cake resembling the joyous flag-raising happened way back in 1960.
