The lamentation of a nation

It is widely celebrated and the French Tricolour is much in evidence, while the President of the Republic attends a military parade on the Champs-Elysees of Paris.

The emergence of Alliance of Alliance Francaise in Nigeria has contributed greatly to the promotion of French language and culture in Nigeria. Not only that, they also promote Nigerian arts, music and writers.
