Nigerians are no longer sitting on couches They no longer look desolate They no longer sit back, recline, and relax They no longer wait for the day to come For the sun has already arisen, and the day is nigh
Nigeria is growing greater each day With the investments of strong youth With the increments of new intelligence and creativity With the contribution of passion and integrity A new day is slowly unfolding
Nigerians are making things work Minds are inventing Businesses are booming The stock market is growing The Nation is being rebuilt
Still some areas are deficient The Niger Delta people are suffering The schools lack true education The hospitals are inundated with filth Yet, this is the plight of our independence
October 1st is still significant But now with different reasons No longer because it is merely a day of jubilee But now because it is a day of change A day where we can hope for REAL independence Independence that comes without chains to corruption
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY NIGERIA, May you live to see change...
