JUST IN: President Tinubu Authorises Revert to Old National Anthem

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has assented to the bill recently passed by the National Assembly reverting to the Nigerian Old National Anthem.


President Tinubu assented to the bill at the joint sitting of the National Assembly to mark 25years of unbroken democratic rule in Nigeria.

Here is the National Anthem:



¶Nigeria we hail thee

Our own dear native land

Though tribes and tongue may differ

In brotherhood we stand

Nigerians all, are proud to serve

Our sovereign Motherland.


¶Our flag shall be a symbol

That truth and justice reign

In peace or battle honour’d,

And this we count as gain,

To hand on to our children

A banner without stain.


¶O God of all creation

Grant this our one request.

Help us to build a nation

Where no man is oppressed

And so with peace and plenty

Nigeria may be blessed.
