          Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation, NTDC, has concluded plans to host a first-of its-kind pre-independence concert.The concert will hold 30th Sepetember at  the Old Parade Ground, in Area 10, Abuja, the pre-independence concert meant to inculcate the spirit of patriotism and foster fast eroding unity among Nigerians.
     The concert  will feature top artistes such as Lagbaja, Sunny Neji, and D’Banj ,many top comedians among others.
       Speaking at media briefing in Lagos , Otunba Olusegun Runsewe, the Director General, NTDC, stated that as the country attained 51 years of independence, the corporation intends to use the concert as a vehicle to bring back peace and stability that once existed among all tribes in the country and further boost the nation’s quest for unity among the citizenry.
    “We must use this independence celebration to reconnect all the citizenry and build up the cordial relationship that for ages existed between all the tribes in this country. And evidence has shown that the easiest way to unite all Nigerians is through sports and entertainment. That’s why we have decided to host this concert to help heal all the wounds caused by disunity and insecurity,” Runsewe explained.
      He added that the concert, a free show, may enter the nation’s calendar of pre-independence activities and therefore become a yearly affair. Revelers are expected to show their patriotic zeal by wearing green and white colour attires, which will qualify them to attend the show.
