Should Nigeria Revert to Its Old National Anthem? Share Your Thoughts!

Nigeria's national anthem has a rich history, and recently, President Tinubu has proposed reverting to the country's former national anthem, "Nigeria, We Hail Thee". But before we dive into the debate, let's take a brief look at the history of this anthem.

"Nigeria, We Hail Thee" was Nigeria's national anthem from 1959 to 1978. It was written by Lillian Jean Williams and composed by Frances Benda. The anthem was a symbol of national pride and unity, and its lyrics celebrated Nigeria's diversity and the hope for a brighter future.

According to President Tinubu, the old national anthem represents a more inclusive and united Nigeria, and reverting to it would help to promote national unity and cohesion in the face of current challenges. He believes that the lyrics of the old anthem better reflect the country's values and aspirations.

Should Nigeria revert to its old national anthem, "Nigeria, We Hail Thee"? Do you think this change would promote national unity and cohesion, or is it a step backward? Share your thoughts, opinions, and perspectives!

Let's have a respectful and constructive conversation about this proposal. Share your views, and let's explore the implications of reverting to the old national anthem together!
