The National Anthem


Arise, O compatriots, Nigeria's call obey

To serve our fatherland

With love and strength and faith

The labor of our heroes past

Shall never be in vain

To serve with heart and might

One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.


Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause

Guide our leader’s right

Help our youth the truth to know

In love and honesty to grow

And living just and true

Great lofty heights attain

To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign.


National Pledge


It was written by Prof (Mrs.) Felicia Adebola Adedoyin in 1976.

I pledge to Nigeria my country.

To be faithful, loyal and honest.

To serve Nigeria with all my strength

To defend her unity and uphold her honour and glory

So help me God
