Nigeria’s Oby Ezekwesili (I love to call her like that), who was a former Minister of Education, has reacted to the change of the national anthem

Oby announced to the world today that, she will like it to be on record that, she will never sing the newly adopted National Anthem.

She says she won’t be a party to it and can’t be forced.

She also said, her anthem will remain the one we all know; ‘Arise, O compatriots’ and not the newly adopted one; ‘Nigeria, we hail thee’.

She made the statement on X.

She wrote:

Quote
”*Public Service Announcement*

Let it be known to all and sundry that I, Obiageli “Oby” Ezekwesili shall whenever asked to sing the Nigerian National Anthem sing:

1. Arise, O compatriots, Nigeria’s call obey
To serve our fatherland
With love and strength and faith
The labour of our heroes past
Shall never be in vain
To serve with heart and might
One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.

2. Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause
Guide our leader’s right
Help our youth the truth to know
In love and honesty to grow
And living just and true
Great lofty heights attain
To build a nation where peace and justice reign.

This is my own National Anthem and let it be known that no one can suppress my right to dissent an obnoxious “law” that is repugnant to all that is of good conscience in Nigeria.

Whatever else is #NotMyNationalAnthem.”

Nigerians are having the hardest time of their lives but their politicians are more concerned about the national anthem. Heartless and evil politicians.
