He said, “This photo exhibition has been put together to remind us of our rich history, and to tell the story of Nigeria for the benefit of the youths who have been exposed to bias and incorrect rendition of past happenings in the country.

“For the young Nigerians, this exhibition will act as a way of impacting knowledge in formative and pictorial preservation of Nigerians leaders who have contributed to achieving its purpose of unity in diversity.

“As a nation, we had our challenging times but we overcame them on the strength of our rich culture, dynamic population with over 250 ethnic groups and ever resilient spirit.

“In spite of our diversity in culture and language, we remain a strong and indivisible country. This unity in our diversity has been aptly captured in the theme of this diamond jubilee celebration.”

The Minister, Industry, Trade and Investment, Adeniyi Adebayo who was represented by the Director Policy and Strategy, Babangida Alkali said the photo exhibition is one of the activities lined up to commemorate the Nigeria @60 Diamond Jubilee Celebration.
