Nigeria, my country and my fatherland,
A land flowing with milk and honey,
Nigeria is a land where planting and harvesting seasons never ceases.
Have you heard of a country with Coal, Bitumen, Oil and Gas?
Yes, that’s my country, that’s my fatherland,
And that’s where I reside.
Have you heard of a country with Timber, Gold and Iron ore?
Of course, that’s my home,
I am a citizen of this great country.
Have you heard of a country with Tin, Lead, Zinc and Salt?
Yes, we are still talking about my fatherland,
I am proud to be a citizen of this beloved country.
Why then do we live in penury?
Why then do we feed as though we are in the desert?
These questions are crying for answers.
Nigeria, my country,
Change is possible,
A new Nigeria is possible.
We can start by being good followers, and responsible Leaders
Begin by acting right today!
