Tinubu Signs Bill Reverting To Old National Anthem “Nigeria, We Hail Thee”

Tinubu writes House of Assembly

President Bola Tinubu has signed the National Anthem Bill 2024, reinstating Nigeria’s old national anthem, “Nigeria, we hail thee.”

This decision was confirmed during a joint session of the National Assembly to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of Nigeria’s 4th Republic.

Senate President Godswill Akpabio announced the bill’s enactment today, marking the first anniversary of President Tinubu’s administration.

Akpabio emphasised that the session’s primary purpose was to launch the new national anthem.

“This morning, Mr President signed into law an Act of Parliament, the newly passed National Anthem Bill 2024,” Akpabio stated.

He added that President Tinubu would not deliver a speech as he needed to attend the launch of the Abuja metro line immediately after the session.

The legislative bodies, the Senate and the House of Representatives had previously approved the bill in separate sessions, opting to replace “Arise, O Compatriots” with “Nigeria, We Hail Thee.”

Tinubu’s confirmation of the anthem as the “latest national anthem” comes amid the country’s economic and security crisis.
