In their bids for the country to re-adopt the old National Anthem, The House of Reps  passed a bill that was initially sponsored by Majority leader, Julius Ihonvbere.

It was debated for a second reading and rushed through a third reading amid a rowdy session.

In the same vein, the Nigerian Senate held an executive/closed session on Thursday to deliberate on changing the national anthem.


See the lyrics of the old 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.
