They all had elaborately structured dreams of freedom and independence from British colonial rule, for the great Nation of Nigeria and it`s people.

The Community Development Committee Chairman of the Local Government area of Oduoha, Emohua in the Rivers State –  Honest Chukwunda, already  explained that there would be no lavish independence day celebrations since there seems to be no funds to celebrate with. Dr. Philips Okolo, a lecturer from the University of Niger Delta, Bayelsa State, shared the same view. He also said, most residents of Bayelsa State, could not afford to pay their medical bills nor can they afford to pay their children`s school fees.
