As part of the festivities was also hoisted the Monument Flag, at the Museum of Military History.

On occasion, the governor, quoted by Angop, said that the luandans should remember Agostinho Neto for his teachings, which he says continue to be an example for the current generation.

Already Jomo Fortunato, minister of the Culture, Tourism and Environment, considered that the first President of the Republic must also be remembered of the cultural aspect and admitted that the workmanship of Agostinho Neto must be included in the school curriculum, so that the future generations know the vision of the founder of the Nation.

In turn, Robert de Almeida, nationalist and president of the Foundation Sagrada Esperança, underlined that the citizens must be engaged to materialize the ideal of Neto, who was based on the maxim that "the most important thing is to solve the problems of the people".

Agostinho Neto was born on September 17, 1922, and died on September 10, 1979, in Moscow, Russia.
