In Nigeria’s embrace, peaceful and sad stories,
A land of diversity, vibrant and gold.
From ancient kingdoms, like the Igbo,
to the bustling streets of Lagos and Abuja,
A blend of cultures, where unity could meet.

From the Niger Delta’s winding streams,
To savannahs vast, where nature gleams,
Nigeria’s beauty, beyond bounds,
With landscapes diverse, that truly astounds.

In Abuja, the heartbeat of the nation,
A city alive, with vibrant sensation.
Where dreams take flight, amidst the bustling crowd,
In the pursuit of success, voices of injustices and peace are loud.

From Nollywood’s silver screen delight,
To Afro beat that moves, day and night,
Nigeria’s creativity knows no end,
A global cultural force, the world to transcend.

Through challenges faced, resilience prevails,
Nigerians stand strong, their spirit never fails.
United as one, with hope in their hearts,
Building a future where progress imparts.

My Nigeria, land of rich heritage,
innovative Pan-African people, grace, by God’s grace
May your story continue, with boundless courage.
With open arms, you welcome all,
A nation rising, standing tall.
