This old National Anthem was opposed by a Yoruba group, Egbe ọmọ Odùduwà, following it's adoption during the colonial rule.

Re: Senate Passes Bill On Old National Anthem by perez100: 9:44pm On May 28
So, despite the hunger in Nigeria - this is what our Senators and Reps decided to discuss in both upper and lower Chambers? Who did Nigeria this?

So it will be interesting to see how Yoruba lokan will respond to this frivolous and vexatious bill

Re: Senate Passes Bill On Old National Anthem by Doyin2(m): 9:50pm On May 28
Exaltation of colonialism.

An anthem created by a Nigerian now abandoned for the one created by the colonialists.

What a shame!
Re: Senate Passes Bill On Old National Anthem by ArcSEMPECJ(m): 9:50pm On May 28
Ok , the only two people that are left in Nigeria now are people that....

1 ...their visas were denied but have hopes

2...people that don't have money to leave but huzzling to gather money .

They should bring back their children who are studying overseas to recite the old national Anthem....

Imagine ....no wonder Senate President said , don't suffocate the poor, allow them to breath and they all laughed remembering Tinubu said it first ..

Nigeria's former anthem
"Nigeria, We Hail Thee" was composed by two British women Lillian Jean Williams and Frances Berda.

To imagine that somebody's father woke to sponsor this bill at a time like this simply goes to show how clueless these set of politicians are.
No innovative ideas.
No creative ideas.
No progressive ideas.
But just to revert to the old national anthem?

What!!!

If this is really the sort of things they go there to discuss at the senate, alongside sending prayers to their email addresses, then we are doomed!!!

Chineke ekwekwala ihe ojoo!!!

That's one of the main issues with the Old Anthem.

To even imagine that a country where history is not taught in schools are trying to use a national anthem to unite people is simply unthinkable.

Bunch of crazy men, how does this bill affect the economy of Nigeria?
Re: Senate Passes Bill On Old National Anthem by meobizy(f): 10:00pm On May 28
This reminds me of the time the federal government decided to rename UNILAG. Here we go again, another distraction for the masses.
Re: Senate Passes Bill On Old National Anthem by simplesearch: 10:00pm On May 28
Isn't this like erecting a magnificent edifice from the top and expecting it to stand the test of time? The root cause of Nigerias problem is bad leadership and endemic corruption. No amount of national anthem or pledge good as it may, can compel a child with an irresponsible father to act right. While trying to build patriotism in the citizens who are living daily on empty stomach and penury, why can't our leaders sacrifice their jumbo packages and loots so that the nation can grow. What better way would there be to drive a solid sense of patriotism in the citizenry than this? Let's stop cutting corners and chasing shadows in this country, in pursuit of lasting solution. God is not behind our predicament in Nigeria, it is squarely man made.

The wisest people in this country are the Igbo people. They rejected Buhari, he turned out to be monumental failure, they rejected TINUBU, who is gunning for world Guinness record in failure.

Mtchew, Old Anthem that didn't even stop Nigerian Civil War from happening.
Re: Senate Passes Bill On Old National Anthem by achillesfoot(m): 10:09pm On May 28
All of these are gimmicks to divert your attention from what's happening.. There's a social engineering company whose job is to come up with silly ideas like this to test the stupidity of the populace.. They do this to check if the people are still divided or not... It will interest you to know that Tinubu, Atiku, Obi are not enemies.. They meet in their secret meetings while we fight over left over food..

Re: Senate Passes Bill On Old National Anthem by Omoawoke: 10:13pm On May 28
Africans have this special love for the people that enslaved them and colonized them. I can’t believe they will even think of going from the anthem they composed for themselves to the one that was composed for them by their colonial masters
