Telecommunication firm, MTN, has celebrated Nigeria at 57 with the national anthem, using a global choir organised over the social media.
Participants joined the event using the hashtag #YelloCompatriots, with singers dressed in the national attires, waving flags, alongside MTN ambassadors, at MTN offices nationwide.
According to the company’s Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Muhammad Siddiqui, “as demonstrated today (yesterday), there is beauty and strength in unity.
“The brilliance, enthusiasm, energy and can-do spirit of our countrymen is accentuated by the opulent multi-cultural heritage of this country.
“Serving Nigerians is a source of pride and honour for all of us at MTN. We wish peace, progress and prosperity for Nigeria, and pray that God blesses Nigerians.”
The company also rewarded some visitors at walk-in centres and those who sent in videos of themselves singing the anthem on social media platforms.
