National Assembly members sing old national anthem after signs by Tinubu

Must read

Members of the joint session of the National Assembly on Wednesday, sang the old national anthem, ‘Nigeria, we hail thee’ for the first time after president Bola Tinubu signed the bill 2024 into law.

The singing of the National anthem commenced at the marking the Silver Jubilee of Nigeria’s 4th Republic.

The Senate and the House of Representatives had previously passed the legislation to replace the national anthem from “Arise, O Compatriots” to “Nigeria, We Hail Thee” at separate sittings.

Below are the stanza of Nigeria We Hail Thee:

Nigeria, we hail thee,

Our own dear native land,

Though tribe and tongue may differ,

In brotherhood, we stand,

Nigerians all, and 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.
