FG To Organize Creative Competition For Nigerians
The Federal Government is organizing a creative competition for Nigerians to mark the country’s 60th independence anniversary on October 1.
A statement signed by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami on Saturday said the creative challenge was instituted to ensure that all Nigerians participated in the celebration.
Pantami, the chairman of the inter-ministerial sub-committee on creativity, said the creative challenge was expected to produce the designer of the thematic and creative aspects of Ithe event.
The theme of the celebration is; “Together at 60”, he added.
“As the saying goes, we are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.
“The federal government therefore wants to use this opportunity to celebrate our strength as one indivisible country, and also provide opportunity for Nigerians to choose their brand and harness the power of our creative minds to create other elements that will form the brand of the anniversary,” he said.
He said the sub-committee of the inter-ministerial committee came up with the idea of the challenge in which they are looking for talented, critical thinking and creative individuals or teams to produce the slogan, photograph, and poem for Nigerians to mark the country’s 60th independence anniversary from October 1, 2020 to December 30, 2021.

“The best brand and concept will be presented to President Muhammadu Buhari and will be used in celebrating Nigeria’s 60th anniversary”, he said.
The winners will receive prizes in addition to being part of the epoch-making event, according to the minister.
