Must read

The Anambra State government has declared Tuesday, November 16, as a public holiday in honour of Nigeria’s first president, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, who was born on November 16, 1904.

This was disclosed in a statement by the state commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, DON ADINUBA.
This year makes it the third year the Anambra State government would be observing the birthday anniversary.

 The State governor, Willie Obiano, had previously called on the federal government to recognize the date as a nation-wide public holiday, in honour of Azikiwe’s contribution to Nigeria, just as Ghana and Tanzania have done for Dr Kwame Nkrumah, and Julius Nyerere, respectively.
