Queen Elizabeth II of England has congratulated Nigeria as it marks its 60th Independence anniversary.
The British monarch congratulatory message was issued through its High Commission in Nigeria.
Femi Adesina, spokesperson to President Muhammadu Buhari, made this known on Wednesday.
According to Adesina, the Queen, in her message, prayed for happiness and prosperity in Nigeria.
“It gives me great pleasure to offer my warmest congratulations on the 60th anniversary of Nigeria’s Independence, together with my best wishes for your country’s continued happiness and prosperity,” the message read.
“The United Kingdom and Nigeria benefit from strong and enduring ties as Commonwealth partners through shared history and most importantly, our people. These are bonds that I hope and believe will flourish long into the future.”
Nigeria was a former colony of the British until it got its independence in 1960.
This year’s independence day celebration has been tagged ‘ together at 60’ by the president.
