National Assembly Passes Bill To Revert To Old National Anthem


May 24, 2024

In a surprise move, the National Assembly passed a bill to revert to the old national anthem, “Nigeria, We Hail Thee”. The sudden decision sent shockwaves throughout the country, with many Nigerians expressing a mix of emotions.

For some, the old anthem evoked memories of a bygone era, a time of hope and unity. They welcomed the change, seeing it as a step towards reclaiming the country’s lost glory. Others were skeptical, arguing that the change was unnecessary and would only lead to confusion.

The bill was sponsored by the House Leader, Professor Julius Ihonvbere, who had long been advocating for a return to the old anthem. He believed that the current anthem, adopted in 1978, had lost its significance and no longer resonated with Nigerians.

As the news spread, social media was abuzz with debates and discussions. Some shared nostalgic stories of singing the old anthem in school, while others expressed concerns about the implications of the change.

Despite the mixed reactions, the National Assembly pushed forward with the bill, passing it through all stages in record time. The President signed it into law, and “Nigeria, We Hail Thee” was once again officially recognized as the national anthem.

As Nigerians began to sing the old anthem once more, a sense of nostalgia washed over the country. It was a reminder of a time when the nation was young and full of promise. For some, it was a call to reclaim that lost promise, to strive for a better future. For others, it was simply a chance to relive fond memories.

Either way, the return to the old national anthem marked a significant moment in Nigeria’s history, a moment of reflection and hope for a brighter tomorrow.
