National Anthem

NATIONAL ANTHEM
The Nigerian National Anthem was replaced on October 1, 1978 by a new anthem. The music was composed by Mr. Ben Odiase, Director of Music of the Nigerian Police Band. The wordings of the National Anthem are as follows:

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

Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause;
Guide our leaders 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 shall reign.
