What exactly does that word mean?
In Nigeria's case, I can honestly not provide a definite answer.
While this lack of definition disturbs me, it also gives me hope to believe that Nigeria is undergoing a metamorphosis. As a moth becomes a butterfly. Nigeria, who she is, what she is, cannot be defined. those who know her, need no definition to understand her and love her.
To those who know her, understand her and love her - let us take this day to commit ourselves to her greatness. Because although she lacks definition, although she is in transformation, we know her, we understand her and we love her.
Independence? It is a mere word we have forgotten, but some day shall be the force we command. Simply because we know her, we understand her and we love her.
