Tinubu Approves 'Nigeria, We Hail Thee' as New National Anthem
  • President Tinubu signs bill restoring old national anthem, “Nigeria, We Hail Thee”
  • Move marks symbolic return to pre-1978 anthem on 25th anniversary of democracy
  • Senate President announces change during joint National Assembly session

In a symbolic move, President Bola Tinubu has approved the National Anthem Bill 2024, reinstating the iconic “Nigeria, We Hail Thee” as the country’s official anthem.

The decision was announced by Senate President Godswill Akpabio during a joint session of the National Assembly convened to mark the Silver Jubilee of Nigeria’s 4th Republic.

Akpabio revealed that the primary purpose of the session was to launch the new, yet familiar, national anthem.

“The session’s main purpose is to launch the new national anthem,” he stated, clarifying that President Tinubu would not deliver a speech as he needed to depart for the inauguration of the Abuja metro line.

Both chambers of the National Assembly had previously passed the bill separately, paving the way for its eventual approval by the President. The move effectively replaces the current anthem, “Arise, O Compatriots,” which had been in use since its introduction in 1978.

Pornography Deadens The Brain, Kills Wisdom And Intelligence — Dr Chris Okafor

Pornography Deadens The Brain, Kills Wisdom And Intelligence -- Dr Chris Okafor

Popular cleric, Dr Chris Okafor is not happy that the world has allowed itself to be esnared by the unholy lure of pornography which he says is evil in it’s entirety.

Dr Okafor, a well known prophet who is the founder of the Grace Nation Church International, Lagos is as alarmed by the rising percentage of the world’s population hooked on pornography as the damage it is doing to their mental faculties.

He describes the trend — fostered mainly by the internet — as horrific especially when considered that it has been allowed to gain a foothold even amongst christians who he says should know better.

Dr Okafor did not mince words in condemning pornography and the decadence it promotes, insisting that it is wholly a demonic agenda.

“Pornography is the devil’s own agenda to pollute the human race before God. God is holy and those who must worship and serve him must do so in spirit and in truth,” Okafor told a full house of worshippers while teaching on the subject “Faculties Of The New Man In Christ,” during a recent Sunday service.

“Pornography and all other sexual sins like homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality, masturbation, incest and others is an aberration as it contradicts God’s original plan and purpose for man.

“Pornography is not only a sin, it is a killer. It deadens the brain, kills intelligence and completely erodes one’s ability for rational thought. As a matter of fact, it is a dangerous pastime for anyone, particularly christians to engage in,” he admonished.

He did not also spare the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) adherents who he described as straying from God’s agenda for man.

“I have heard people say it is their sexual preference to engage in same-sex relationship or marriages. How come? Now, let me ask. What was God’s original plan for man as per the issue of relationships? In Genesis 2:24, God made it explicitly clear that He favoured a relationship between man and woman by the very act of creating Eve — a woman — as the fit and proper person to live with Adam — a man.

“So, God created Adam and Eve, and not Adam and Steve. We must, therefore, know where God stands on the issue. And where God stands on an issue must always guide our actions and the way we live in this world,” he added.
