Speech at the acceptance of Nigeria to the UN 1960

‘Nigeria is a great country. It is great in area- Nigeria is half the size of Western Europe.

It is great in population: Nigeria had nearly 40 millions of people.

It is great in prospects, because Nigeria has all the resources to maintain a powerful and a prosperous nation.

Nigerians are great in character, for Nigerians are a happy people. They have the gift of laughter; the priceless gift of being able on occasions to laugh at themselves. They are a vigorous, self-respecting, self-disciplined people, with that backbone of moral integrity which is the secret of wisdom and the secret of human relations’
