Nigeria’s independence day is always celebrated on October 1, and it is a national holiday.
Citizens of the country all over the world usually celebrate the day by wearing green and white, the colours of the national flag, as well as taking to social media to share goodwill messages.
Celebrities are also not left out in the celebration as several of them take to their social media pages to share special notes as well as post green and white themed photos.

*Good morning beautiful people of God, (ROR) *THE CHRIST-ENVIRONMENT* *Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances* (Colossians 2:20). The Apostle Paul had come to a climactic point in his discussion with the Christians in Colossae in the verse above. Notice again his communication: “…if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances.” Amazing and profound: the Christian doesn’t live in this world; in this natural plane of life! Hallelujah! You’re therefore not supposed to be affected, ruled or influenced by the rudiments of this world; the vagaries of life and nature can’t, and shouldn’t, impact on you because you’re from another plane; a different environment; the Christ-environment. In the Old Testament, after the children of Israel left Egypt and journeyed through the desert, they carried their own atmosphere with them. Even though they were in the desert, they were unaffected, unblemished, and untainted by the severity and debilitating effects of the desert. During the day, they had a cloud as their covering against the scorching sun, and at night, there was a pillar of fire shielding them from the biting cold. They were in a different environment. How glorious! Being born again, you have something far more glorious: you’re in “Christ.” Christ is a place, an environment. You were born into the environment called Christ, when you were born again. In that environment, life is different; everything is pure and perfect; there’s no failure, weakness, defeat, sickness, disease, poverty or any of the negativities of life! All you have is glory, righteousness, life and immortality, joy, health, peace, prosperity, and abundance! The Christ-environment is the kingdom of heaven. You have absolute mastery over circumstances; you’re never subject to the principles of this world, because you really don’t live in this world. This is the understanding that the Spirit, through the Apostle Paul, is passing

Nigeria, like every other country has her ups and downs. However, it is better to remain hopeful and work together for a better Nigeria.
Happy Independence Day Nigeria!
Despite many issues surrounding the state of the nation, many people have taken to social media to celebrate Nigeria in their own very unique styles.
Photos of people all dress in the significant colour; green and white, have flooded the Nigerian social media platforms with beautiful messages to accompany them.
A nation not without her own flaws, it is quite impressive to see that a lot of people are still hopeful that Nigeria as a country will get better soon. Even though it is the same message every year, it is refreshing to see optimism in a time like this. Another interesting topic; 7 Nigerian celebrities born on October 1
