Dr. Omoigui criticized the decision to revert to the colonial anthem as a betrayal of Nigeria’s independence.

Proponents of the change argue that the colonial anthem embodies more relevant values and could promote patriotism.

However, Dr. Omoigui dismissed these claims as hypocritical.

He stated that the Nigerian anthem, with its music and lyrics created by Nigerians, represents the nation’s identity and cultural heritage.

Dr. Omoigui condemned the current political leadership for its corruption and failure to address the nation’s windows.

He urged Nigerians to resist this decision and maintain their national pride.

“When I wrote my words for the anthem, in 1978, it was my dream for the country to move forward and take its place among the great nations of the world. But all that potential has been hijacked and degraded by a political leadership that constitutes a criminal enterprise.”

The regressive reverting of our anthem to the colonial anthem is a betrayal of our independence.
