Yesterday Nigeria became 56 years old. While many were busy celebrating, some felt there is nothing to celebrate about the country.

The recent recession faced in the country seems to be the worst of all, as citizens are almost tired of been hopeful.

The change many clamored for, actually came but in a negative way, leaving many Nigerians in regret.

Here are some inspirational words from Nollywood actress, producer and director, Omoni Oboli who celebrated Nigeria in Green and White.

She said: We smile not because everything is perfect but because we are confident that as long as we have breath, we have hope! Happy Independence Day Nigeria. Let us pray for Nigeria. We will rise above this! #KeepSmiling #PositiveVibes #NigeriaGoBetter #56 #ThrowBack #Actor#Scriptwriter #Filmmaker .”
