Edo State House Of Assembly on Monday passed a bill for a law to declare ‘Beautiful Edo, Glorious Edo’ as the official Anthem of the state.

A motion to consider the bill was moved by the Majority Leader, Charity Aiguobarueghian, (PDP Ovia North East) and it was seconded by the Minority Leader, Henry Okaka(APC Owan East).

Considering the bill clause by clause, the lawmakers said the “Beautiful Edo, Glorious Edo” as the official anthem was to promote unity, pride and a sense of identity among Edo people.

The lawmakers said that the Anthem, composed by the wife of the state governor, Mrs Betsey Obaseki would leave a lasting legacy of her in the state.

Aiguobarughian said the bill, when passed into law, would also promote the cultural heritage of Edo people.

The Deputy Speaker, Maria Oligbi-Edeko, also said that late Anthony Enahoro was the first to move a motion for Nigeria independence,

Oligbi-Edeko added that Edo was always known for initiating new policies and programmes in the country.

The Speaker of the House, Blessing Agbebaku, said that Edo would be the first state to have an official anthem.

According to Agbebaku, if you listen to the lyrics and rhythm of the three stanzas of the anthem, they are all perfectly arranged and composed.

“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu said that we should all go back to the old national anthem of “Nigeria we hail thee”, it also good that as a state, we also have our official anthem,” he said.

The Speaker directed the Clerk, Yahaya Omogbai to forward clean copies of the bill to the governor for his assent.

God I pray Tinubu will be the last president of Nigeria


I’m seeing it coming


Make Nigeria divide so government won’t be developing lagos with oil money from Rivers state


Infact I want Nigeria to split into pieces where Rivers and Bayelsa will only have their own country


Edo and Delta have their own country


Akwa Ibom and Cross River their own country


Maybe all South East states their own country


However the rest decide to rule themselves they can fuvk off and do them

Just look at what these people are throwing at us to distract from their recklessness and mal-governance

At a time when inflation is driving people to the brink? When minimum wage is being haggled back and forth , as if to say it's foreigners that are asking to be paid ?

Insecurity, energy crises, famine ,the new norm.

The problem is that many out of the very roughly estimated 200m amongst us have not seen and experienced good governance and democracy, because what is this craze about anthems when the country is at the precipice?
