The guests at the event
refused for the American
anthem to be sung before
the Nigerian anthem.
There was a mild drama
on Tuesday at the 18th
Annual Thisday Awards
held in Abeokuta, the Ogun
State capital, as guests at
the ceremony kicked
against the American
National Anthem being
sung before the Nigerian
Guests were already seated
when the award
organiser, Nduka
Obaigbena, owner of
Thisday Newspapers, and
the Ogun State Governor,
Ibikunle Amosun, ushered
in Bill Clinton, former
American President.
After that, the Master of
Ceremony announced that
the American Anthem will
be sung followed by the
Nigerian anthem.
In swift response to the
announcement, there was a
general condemnation
from the guests, who
vehemently kicked against
the arrangement,
insisting that such
arrangement was uncalled
for and insulting to
Nigeria and her citizens.
The guests argued that in
Nigeria, the country’s
anthem should be sung
first as that in America,
Americans would never
agree to such
They demanded a reversal
of the national anthem
arrangement. A change
was effected. The Nigeria
national anthem was sung,
followed by Ogun State
The American anthem was
eventually not sung at all.
The ceremony was in
celebration of Nigeria’s
best teachers and fifteen
teachers were honoured at
the event. It was organised
by Mr. Obaigbena’s
Thisday Newspapers and
held in the Ogun State
