Nigerian Independence Day celebrated at Liverpool HopeWednesday 3 September 2014
Our Place played host to the 54th Nigerian Independence Day celebrations this week.
The celebratory event, organised by MA student Dugalpi Alahirah, included presentations about the history of Nigeria and a look at the country's place in the world in 2014.
Guests were also treated to a performance of traditional Nigerian songs and dance, and they also enjoyed a selection of Nigerian food prepared by Liverpool Hope’s catering team.
Dugalpi said: “Both staff and students who attended the event said they had a really good time - and most importantly they enjoyed the food! For me, it was important to celebrate such an important day with the university community because it's a great way for other students to learn more about my country. It was a good opportunity for both international and home students to come together socially, have fun and learn about each other’s culture.”
