How is Nigerian Independence Day celebrated?

Despite being the national day of Nigeria, the holiday itself is declared annually by the government of Nigeria.

In New York, Nigeria’s Independence Day has been marked by celebrations since 1991 and is the largest by any African nation in the United States.

The letter 'r' is never silent, but its sound is sometimes transposed. In a final unaccented syllable, terminating with 're', the 'r' is pronounced after the 'e' as acre, spectre, lucre, sabre, fibre, ochre, eagre, maugre, sepulchre, theatre, massacre. To this choice of words we may add, centre and sceptre.
