Dr. Isa Pantami, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, revealed this today in a recent statement in Abuja.
According to him, to guarantee inclusiveness, the thematic and creative aspects of the event would be designed by Nigerians for Nigeria, concentrating on the proposed theme “Together at 60”.
He added that Nigerians have gone far and wide, impacting their communities and the world at large, and the people are only as strong as they are united.
His words, “On Oct.1, Nigeria will be celebrating its Diamond Jubilee as it turns 60 years.”
“It is a day that reminds every citizen about the dawn of the nation we call our country, a diverse nation with resilient and hardworking people.”
“Nigerians have gone far and wide, impacting their communities and the world at large and as the saying goes, we are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”
“The Federal Government uses this opportunity to celebrate our strength as one indivisible country.”
“The Federal Government is also providing opportunity for Nigerians to choose their brand and harness the power of our creative minds to create other elements that will form the brand of the anniversary.”

He is a retired major general in the Nigerian Army and previously served as the nation’s head of state from 31 December 1983 to 27 August 1985, after taking power in a military coup d’état. The term Buharism is ascribed to the Buhari military government.
