Nigeria, we hail thee,

Our own dear native land,

Though tribe and tongue may differ,

In brotherhood we stand,

Nigerians all are proud to serve

Our sovereign Motherland.

 

Our flag shall be a symbol

That truth and justice reign,

In peace or battle honour’d

And this we count as gain,

To hand on to our children

A banner without stain.

 

O God of all creation,

Grant this our one request,

Help us to build a nation

Where no man is oppressed,

And so with peace and plenty

Nigeria may be blessed.

Those were the very words Nigerians sang back in the 60’s and 70’s as our National Anthem. A time where true patriotism reigned in the blood streams of every Nigerian and orderliness was seen from afar.

No one has to question twice who we were as a country and what we stood for. Conversing with our parents you could almost feel the joy and yearn for the old times and days where peace and plenty were in abundance.

I got a few pictures from the 60’s and 70’s that’s got me wishing I was born then. Compared to what we have now, should I say I prefer the olden days? No doubt the ‘now’ has it’s pro’s but the average Nigerian is yet to experience that. As a people, we still remain hopeful.
