By: Reuben Egba,

Plateau State Government in a glamorous style Celebrated Nigeria’s 63rd Independence Anniversary on the 2nd October, 2023, at Rwang Pam Stadium Jos.

The mean event that marked the occasion was the march pass by the Nigerian Police and other Paramilitary, voluntary organizations.

There was also a marching competition by both the secondary and primary schools within Jos metropolitan.

At the start of the event, there was a heavy down pour, which ordinarily should have stopped the march pass, but evidently the participants came ready by refusing to leave the field, but continued with the event.

The Governor H.E. Barr. Caleb Mutfang, while taking the ceremonial salute, pleaded with students to leave the rain especially, the primary school children and they refused.


While delivering his speech, the Governor saluted the courage of the gallant Police parade that stood against all odds to see that the event is successful. Also and in same vein he appreciated other uniform organizations and students for standing with the Police parade to till the end of the marching exercise.

“It is indeed heartwarming to see this gathering this morning of dedicated men and women, who have come here this morning to reaffirm their faith and commitment to their great country Nigeria and I want to salute all of you that stood under the rains, to be able to make sure that, this occasion did not fail.

“I want to congratulate all of you particularly, those little children that defiled the weather and show the true Nigerian spirit that we can defile the odds and get this country working.

“I want to thank all of you, and I will like to appeal to everyone of us to copy from this men and women from these gallant children that, despite the odds we  face as a nation, we can summon all of them and make Nigeria rise to glory again.

“So on this hospitious occasion, I will like to congratulate all of us and I continue to urge all of us to have faith in our country, we have no other country to call our own except Nigeria, no matter how things have spoilt, where there is a will there is a way and together we can join hands to rebuild this nation.

“For us on the Plateau, I want to salute these men and women who have been posted on duty here in Plateau State, and I want to thank you sincerely the military formation and the paramilitary agencies for the contribution you are making daily and the sacrifices you are making daily to ensure that, the people of Plateau live in peace and by the Grace of God Plateau State shall know peace, your efforts will not go in vein”.

In appreciation to the commitment of those, who participated in the March Pass the Governor offered a cash reward, so that, after the rain especially the children, they can drink tea.
