To celebrate Nigerian Independence Day on October 1st, Bodwell’s Nigerian contingent (students and staff – thank you Ms. Aimiose) as well as other volunteers, put on a day of celebration for Nigerian culture. The location was in the Bodwell cafeteria at lunch time yesterday.

Nigeria gained independence from Great Britain on 1st October 1960 in part due to rising nationalism during the second world war. Independence Day starts with raising the Nigerian flag, then the President delivers a speech. This is followed by a military parade and cultural events.

We wanted to share with you some photos of the event as well as some of the Nigerian food and drink culture on show such as Chapman. Here’s how to make this fruity cocktail:

½ cup Grenadine Syrup
A few dashes of Angostura Aromatic Bitters
35 cl Fanta Orange
35 cl Sprite
½ an Orange
½ a lemon
Ice cubes

Food on offer included sausage rolls, Chin Chin (a type of cookie) and Jollof rice (one pot rice dish). For info on how to make Nigerian dishes consult this page: http://www.allnigerianrecipes.com/
