Happy June 12 Nigeria wishes

Everything that is remarkable and housing is made by the person who can work in flexibility.

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed
else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.

Let every patriot be honored; don’t let politics get in the way without them, freedom would have died; what they did, we can’t repay.
Happy June 12 Day
