New national anthem is better – Brymo praises Tinubu

Singer and songwriter, Brymo has commended President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for signing the bill to reintroduce the old law national anthem, “Nigeria, We Hail Thee” to law.

CorrectNG reported on Wednesday that Senate President, Godswill Akpabio revealed during plenary at a joint session of the National on May 29 that Tinubu signed it into law.

Reacting to the development via his Instagram page, Brymo opined that the new national anthem has better lyrics in content and context than the one it replaces.

He wrote: “President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is officially my G.O.A.T. of all-time Nigerian president. Read the lyrics of the new national anthem; first stanza is all you need; it asserts Nigeria for ‘motherland’ and now Africa can be fatherland and be the symbol of polygamy and we can all focus on one family unit each finally.

“And my favourite part: ‘In brotherhood, we stand.’ We are all now members of the greatest cult on earth. Nigeria is now the only brotherhood every boy and ambitious girl must belong to in this country! I am very happy!”

Meanwhile, celebrities have been sharing divergent views in response to the government’s decision to return to the ‘Nigeria We Hail Thee’.

Popular standup comedian, I Go Save on May 30, challenged the government to also take the country back to the old petrol pump price.

He made the call in a social media post, noting that since it is done, they might as well bring back the former dollar/naira exchange rate, old taxation percentage and rescind other previous economic decisions.

I Go Save wrote; “Since una don bring back old national anthem; can you people bring back our old dollar price, old fuel price, old flight prompt operating style, old taxation, old security standards et all.”
