Nigerians have taken to Twitter to mark the country’s 60th anniversary with divergent views on the progress made so far.

The #Nigeria60andUseless trend appears to show citizens expressing frustration over what they call the lack of progress in Nigeria.

Meanwhile Nigeria’s President in a speech appealed for unity as the country celebrates its 60th independence anniversary.

”An underlying cause of most of the problems we have faced as a nation is in our consistent harping on artificially contrived fault-lines that we have harboured and allowed unnecessarily to fester,” President Buhari said on Thursday.

Nigeria gained independence from Britain on 1 October 1960.
