THISDAY Style - - CONTENT -

To cel­e­brate the 4th of july Amer­i­can In­de­pen­dence, the united States Am­bas­sador to Nige­ria, Stu­art Symington hosted guests to mark the day and ex­pressed how much Amer­i­cans share with Nige­ri­ans. Ac­cord­ing to Staut, “We share fam­i­lies, friends, in­ter­ests, and prin­ci­ples. All across this land, from Birnin Kebbi to Cal­abar, from maid­uguri to Bada­gry, Nige­ri­ans have wel­comed me warmly and showed me the won­ders of this coun­try and its peo­ple. In al­most every place, I have also met Amer­i­cans whose lives are ded­i­cated to their work with and for Nige­ri­ans.” The Am­bas­sador shared his thoughts about a com­mon­al­ity shared by the united States and Nige­ria – both na­tions’ in­cred­i­ble di­ver­sity. He said Nige­ria is a won­der­fully di­verse na­tion whose dif­fer­ences and di­ver­sity are sources of strength and a rea­son for pride. He con­cluded by say­ing Nige­ria is ca­pa­ble of fac­ing and over­com­ing the same dif­fi­cul­ties the united States has faced in or­der to pre­serve its union.
