Nigerian President: National anthem changed?
Bola Tinubu, the president of Nigeria, has made an unexpected choice, which he signed this particular measure. The national anthem, composed during the british era, has been reinstituted by the President. Some, however, have criticized President Bola Tinubu's decision, calling it a deceitful attempt to deflect attention away from the worsening economic crisis. As per the news agency Reuters report, the Nigerian government has decided to substitute "We Hail Thee" for "Arise O' Compatriots" in their national song going forward. In actuality, this bill, which was filed on Thursday, was approved right away without a congressional debate.
The Nigerian economy has declined significantly.
But as President Bola Tinubu revealed in his speech to the parliament on Wednesday, the country's economy has collapsed dramatically in the first year of his administration, and inflation has risen to a record 28-year high of 33.20%.
Do you know the song's creation year for Nigeria?
Olusegun Obasanjo, the military ruler at the time, banned the national hymn of independence in 1978 without providing an official explanation. It was widely assumed that the reason for this was that the song was created by a british man during the time of british colonialism. Given that their nation is currently dealing with both an economic crisis and a worsening security scenario, some Nigerians have voiced disbelief over the decision.
