INDEPENDENCE DAY BLUES!

(Blast from the past. I look forward to the year I'll discard this article.)

   The Nigerian Independence day has come . I always have mixed feelings every time it comes around.  Why? Despite all the money pumped into the country, sometimes borrowed, the country doesn’t seem to be moving forward.  Some people spend their time blaming the colonial masters for taking different confederacies and gluing them together to form a country; some spend their time blaming the leaders past and present, then the rest don’t even care. Well, the general news is that our leaders are the problem the country has, they destroy the country by stealing away the money meant for the use of the public, they say.
This leads me to the heart of my thoughts on this. Our national anthem, which I regret to say, some don’t even know the words, others know it but recite it like a poem they had to cram. They don’t know the meaning of the words in the National anthem, especially the first line.

ARISE O COMPATRIOTS, NIGERIA’S CALL OBEY
TO SERVE OUR FATHERLAND
WITH LOVE AND STRENGTH AND FAITH
THE LABOURS OF OUR HEROES PAST
SHALL NEVER BE IN VAIN
TO SERVE WITH HEART AND MIGHT
ONE NATION BOUND IN FREEDOM
PEACE AND UNITY’

Well, the National anthem should be scrapped because it is nothing but a farce.
