President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has assented to the bill for the restoration of the National Anthem.

The development happened on Wednesday after the national assembly had earlier passed the bill.

Tinubu also launched the restoration of the anthem after assenting to the bill. 

The legislation reverts the country to the old National Anthem, “Nigeria We Hail Thee,”.

DailyAgent has provided word-for-word of the three-stanza anthem below:

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.
