The Federal government has asked all the 36 States ministry of education and Federal Capital Territory Education Board to commemorate the Commonwealth day coming up on March 11, 2024.

The Minister of Education, Professor Tahir Mamman who gave the directives on Thursday in Abuja during the briefing on the activities lined up for the upcoming annual commemoration of the day said celebrating the day will provide an enabling opportunity to promote democracy, human rights, cultural diversity, cooperation, equality and mutual respect for nation building.

He said the theme for 2024 “One Resilient Common Future: Transforming Our Common wealth” will underlie all Commonwealth activities for the year reflecting the shared values, goals and priorities.”

The Minister said the theme was chosen by the Commonwealth secretariat to reflect the values, priorities and aspirations of the Commonwealth as a whole.


“We must note that the theme highlights the strength and unity within our diverse Commonwealth family to build resilience in the face of global challenges as we navigate through transformative times by leveraging on the connectedness of deep-rooted networks of friendship and goodwill,” he said.
