Nigeria We Hail Thee: Reintroduction Of Old National Anthem My Priority – Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has said the reintroduction of the old national anthem has always been his priority.

Tinubu disclosed this during his meeting with the leadership of the Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, at the State House in Abuja, according to a statement issued by his spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale.

He said the National Assembly made the law reverting to the old national anthem and he does not have a choice but to obey the legislation.

According to Tinubu, Nigeria’s diversity should be protected and celebrated

He said: “Let me allude to something that happened yesterday. The change of national anthem, ‘Nigeria, we hail thee’.

“Some people say, okay, say what? Is that your priority? It’s my priority. I agree with the National Assembly. If they make law, I’ve got to obey that law, or we disagree openly and close the chapter.

“But the question of diversity. Who gave us the name Nigeria? Is it not Britain? Or somewhere? Have we changed our name? We are Nigerians. Our passport shows that.

“As long as we are Nigerians and one family, we remain and protect our diversity and love one another as brothers and sisters.

“It is God Almighty that puts you in that particular place and makes you a member of that family. You have no control over it.

“When I came begging for votes, I didn’t say vote for me as a Yoruba man, I said vote for me as Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”
