5th Sunday in Ordinary Time 2023 – Year A
Queen Elizabeth landed in Lagos on the 28th of January 1956 sixty-seven years ago. Her arrival marked the beginning of her twenty-day visit which ended 16th of February 1956. During this visit, the Queen travelled from Lagos, to Kaduna State in Northern Nigeria before finishing her journey in Port Harcourt in the South. Along this journey, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh stayed in Ibadan, just north of Lagos for five days and it was sometime during this stay that this photograph was taken. The students of Saint Teresa’s College, a school set up by the O.L.A in Ibadan, came out to join the cheering crowds accompanied by their teachers. They can be seen here in the photograph waving flags as the Queen’s car drives by. See our blog for more: link in bio.
