Call for Registration: Freedom Vibes 7.0 Naija Day

Unchained Vibes Africa cordially invites you to Freedom Vibes 7.0 Naija Day aimed at celebrating Nigeria’s diverse cultural heritage. The 2023 general elections in Nigeria have been widely criticized as the most divisive elections since the country’s return to democracy in 1999. Desperate politicians exploited Nigeria’s diversity negatively and weaponized ethnicity in a bid to win elections. As a result, ethnic division has widened and mutual suspicion has worsened among Nigerians. The Naija Day event is designed to raise awareness about the dangers of ethnic and religious politics, contribute to the healing process, rebuild mutual trust, rekindle the hope for a better Nigeria, celebrate Nigeria's diversity, and unite citizens in the struggle for good governance.
