“It could be recalled that our Holy Father – His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu, the King of kings and Lord of lords and Leader of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star in His address to His Children in September 2019 and in several other fora had proclaimed that for Nigeria to find meaning in her journey to nationhood and receive the blessings of God, she should revert to the old National anthem that calls for all Nigerians to stand in Brotherhood irrespective of differences in tribe and tongue.

“Today, this timeless proclamation of the King of kings and Lord of lords has come to pass as Nigeria has officially reverted to the old anthem. By this action, the time has come for Nigeria to manifest her full potentials and receive divine blessings from God.

“The composer of the anthem notwithstanding, Nigerians should be more concerned about the lyrics of this anthem which is a solemn prayer to God and a commitment by all citizens to live together in Brotherhood. This anthem holds great spiritual significance; hence, it is our hope that as we chant these worthy aspirations in all our official gatherings, the letters and spirit of this anthem will fill our hearts and find expression in our national life.
