Search Giant, Google celebrates Nigeria in yet another year Independence Anniversary with the “Google Doddle” as the African country turns 58.
See doodle below:
On October 1,1960, the flag of British Colonial Nigeria was lowered and new flag was raised. After a century of British influence, the region we know today as Nigeria became a Commonwealth realm. This made the new country a sovereign state, and gave it the same political status as other countries around the globe.
Though 1960 is generally celebrated as the birth year of Nigeria, it wasn’t until 1963 that the rule of monarchy was abolished and the Federal Republic of Nigeria was born. In any case, October 1 is a significant date in the history of Africa’s most populous nation.
Today marks the 58th Independence Anniversary of the great country, Nigeria
