Tinubu signs old national anthem bill into Law

President Bola Tinubu has signed the National Anthem Bill despite the opposition from Nigerians.

The Senate President, Godswill Akpabio announced this on Wednesday during a joint session of the National Assembly.

He also announced that the President will not address the House but only flag off the new anthem.

Speaker Tajudeen Abbas said the President cancelled the address because June 12 is the official Democracy Day.

With the signing of the bill, the Old National Anthem ‘ Nigeria We Hail Thee will now replace the present Anthem ‘ Arise ‘O’ Compatriots which was introduced in 1978.
