National Anthem: Nigeria’s Name, Flag Should Also Be Changed – Mike Ozekhome

Posted by Thandiubani on Thu 30th May, 2024 - tori.ng

According to him, the change of the national anthem was long overdue.

 
Rights activist and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Prof Mike Ozekhome has said the National Assembly should do more than changing the old national anthem.
 
This is as he said the move is a welcome development.
 
Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Ozekhome said he was elated by Nigeria’s return to the old national anthem, 10 years after he moved a motion for it at the 2014 National Conference.

“Bringing the old National Anthem back is well overdue. It has better lyrics in content and context, like the Senate President said. It is better than the other one,” he said.
 
“The name Nigeria and the flag should also be changed.”
 
Recall that President Bola Tinubu on Wednesday signed the National Anthem Bill 2024, into law to reinstate the old anthem, “Nigeria, We Hail Thee.”
