BREAKING: President Tinubu signs bill returning Nigeria to old National Anthem

On Wednesday, Senate President Godswill Akpabio announced that President Bola Tinubu has signed the National Anthem Bill 2024, reinstating the original national anthem, “Nigeria, We Hail Thee.”

This declaration was made during a joint session of the National Assembly commemorating the 25th anniversary of Nigeria’s 4th Republic.

President Tinubu is expected to attend the joint session, although he will not deliver a speech due to a prior commitment to launch the Abuja metro line.

Godswill Akpabio explained that the primary purpose of the sitting is to introduce the new national anthem, which has already been approved by both the Senate and House of Representatives in separate sittings.

This development marks a significant change in the country’s national identity, and the Silver Jubilee celebration provides a fitting occasion for this announcement.

The reinstatement of the original national anthem is a nod to the country’s history and heritage, and it is expected to evoke a sense of national pride and unity among citizens.
