 THE FULL TEXT OF THE ASSOCIATION OF LOCAL GOVERNMENTS OF NIGERIA (ALGON) 61ST INDEPENDENCE ANNIVERSARY MESSAGE OF THE NATIONAL PRESIDENT OF THE ASSOCIATION OF LOCAL GOVERNMENTS OF NIGERIA (ALGON) HON. ALABI, KOLADE DAVID.


On behalf of the National Executive Council of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON), the Board of Trustees (BOT), Management and Staff, I heartily rejoice with all Nigerians on this eventful occasion marking her 61st Independence Anniversary.

ALGON is exceptionally happy with all Nigerians for upholding the tenets and values of a Constitutional democracy, in line with the ideals of its founding fathers.


Despite all odds, the Local Governments and Area Councils across the country have one thing or the other to celebrate especially by the provisions of Section 7 (1) of the 1999 Constitution (As Amended) as the government closest to the people with powers to lead and protect the needs of the grassroots legitimately.

Despite the fact that ALGON has had its sides of experiences, it will certainly continue to have fate in the system to address its existential threats especially issues of insecurity through job creation, tenure of office, consistency of election, revenue profile, infrastructure, health delivery services, education, industrialization for secured future of the rural populace.

Nigerians are hereby reminded to never lose hope or forget in a hurry the painstaking sacrifices of our founding fathers despite the country’s diversities Because such will continue to strengthened our love of nationhood.


It is important at this time of our history; for us all to appreciate and draw strength from a popular adage from–Sarojini Naidu which said that “a country’s greatness lies in its undying ideals of love and sacrifice that inspire the mothers of the race”.

I therefore enjoin all Nigerians to make sacrifice that will promote the unity, peace and progress as enunciated in its national seal.

ALGON is specifically assuring Nigerians that despite all the misfortunes, we shall remain steadfast and appreciate God for the union.

Let me remind all Nigerians that there is still hope for better future especially as the Constitution Amendment which is being anticipated will help in strengthening the LGAs/Area Councils efforts for national development.


There’s therefore greater need for shared love amongst all as such will help us to frontally tarkle and win all our challenges together.

Here is therefore wishing Nigerians a Happy Independence Day Celebration 2021

God bless Nigeria
