The National Anthem of Nigeria.
Green and White. The colour of Nigeria and Green. White. Green connotes Naija.
Arise, O compatriots
Nigeria’s call obey
To serve our fatherland
With love and strength and faith.
The labour of our heroes past
Shall never be in vain
To serve with heart and might
One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.
Second Stanza of the Nigerian Anthem:
O God of creation
Direct our noble cause
Guide our leaders right
Help our youth the truth to know
In love and honesty to grow
And living just and true
Great lofty heights attain
To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign
The anthem was composed by Pa Benedict Odiase.
