President Bola Tinubu- Change of National Anthem My Priority

President Bola Tinubu made it known during a meeting on Thursday with the leadership of the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) at the presidential villa in Abuja that returning the old national anthem was a priority for him.

Tinubu signed the National Anthem “Nigeria, We Hail Thee” Bill 2024 into law on Wednesday, May 29, 2024.
The return of the old anthem elicited divided opinions with some commentators criticizing the move as yet another case of “misplaced priority” given the slew of challenges confronting Nigerians.
Tinubu 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,” he said.

“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.”
