Executive presents program for the centenary of Agostinho Neto

The Minister of State and Chief of Staff of the President of the Republic, Adão de Almeida, considered it fair, deserved and necessary to celebrate the centenary of Agostinho Neto.


"Firstly, because Angola knows how to honor the memory of its children, knows how to be grateful and knows how to recognize dedication, commitment and selflessness in the defense of patriotic values. Secondly, because it represents the reaffirmation of a legacy, the transmission of values ​​so that current and future generations of Angolans can serve our country with the same commitment, with the same dedication and with the same selflessness", he justified.

Adão de Almeida, who presided over the launch of the General Program of Activities for the celebrations of the centenary of the founder of the Nation, also said that celebrating the centenary of Neto is to remember the various pages of our glorious history, of trajectories, of struggles, of sweat, mourning and victories.

At the event, which took place at the Dr. Agostinho Neto, where the mortal remains of the nation's founder rest, it was up to the Secretary of State for Social Communication, Nuno Caldas, to present the centenary logo, created by ORION, winner of the public tender. In turn, the General Program of Activities was presented by the Secretary of State for Municipalities, Márcio Daniel.

Under the motto "Angolanos de Mãos Dadas para o Futuro" several activities will take place until December, with emphasis on the re-edition of works by Agostinho Neto, the holding of an international conference, the National Festival of Culture (special centenary FENACULT 2022), a workshop and the program "Sábado no Musseque", an ecumenical service to take place on the 17th of September and a solemn ceremony of decorations.

For the politician Roberto de Almeida, who attended the ceremony, the centenary activities are up to the figure who is honored for all he has done for Angola.

"All this fully justifies it, and the 100th anniversary should really be celebrated with a certain grandeur", said Roberto de Almeida, also a nationalist, in a statement sent to VerAngola.

The launch ceremony was marked by poetry recitals and interpretation of songs from poems by Agostinho Neto, under the watchful eye of several members of the Executive, magistrates, nationalists and figures linked to culture.

António Agostinho Neto, considered the father of the Angolan Nation, for having proclaimed Angola's independence on November 11, 1975, was born on September 17, 1922, in Kaxicane (Icolo and Bengo) and died on September 10, 1979, in the former -Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), present-day Russian Federation. The first President of Angola graduated in Medicine in 1958 and his poetic vein allowed him to write some works, including "Com os Olhos Secos", "Sagrada Esperança" and "A renunciação Impossível".
