Unic Press UK: As Nigeria marked Thursday, 1 October, her 60th independence anniversary, a rancorous rift between those who aver that the country is a failure and those with a different view is trending on Twitter under two hashtags – #Nigeria60andUseless & #NigeriaAt60.
Minimum wage is Saudi Arabia is N305,000. Minimum wages in Nigeria is N30,000, Minimum wage in Egypt is over N60,000 yet you want to compare the fuel price in Nigeria to Saudi Arabia & Egypt

Yes at 60 we still wallow in dirtiness & abject poverty
Yes at 60 we can't boast of anything to call our own, we still depend on others for our survival
Yes at 60 we seems to be comfortable in our predicament and even dining in it..

60 years of Corruption and failed Governance.
60 years of crippling economy and declining democracy.
60 years of continues reliance on Oil and ethno-religious disunity.
