Nigerians asked to respect National symbol The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has called on Nigerians to respect all Nigeria’s national symbols.

The Agency made the call in Osogbo, the capital of Osun State, during a sensitisation parade to mark the 56th anniversary of the replacement of the British national jack flag with the Nigerian flag.

Return To The Farm

Speaking to journalists, the Deputy Director, NOA Osun office, Mr Bashir Oyedemi, said “the flag of Nigeria represents agriculture and unity”, as such Nigerians needed unity to forge ahead for a better Nigeria.

He added that in line with the Federal Government’s initiative Nigerians, at this stage, needed to return to the farm and boost agriculture.

The NOA boss also campaigned for peaceful coexistence among Nigerians irrespective of tribe, adding that the unity of Nigeria is non-negotiable.

Nigeria, precisely on September 16, 1960, lowered the British Union Jack flag, which has been its symbol of identity since colonialism set in and in its place the Nigerian green-white-green flag was hoisted.
