Osun state government orders singing of the revived national song

Osun State’s public and private schools are required to start singing “Nigeria, We hail thee!”, the state’s newly reinstated national song.

A statement signed by Murtala Jimoh, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, on Friday contained the direction given by the Osun State Government.

In a development that sesothomp3 previously reported, President Bola Tinubu endorsed a measure introduced by the National Assembly on Wednesday that would have the country revive its traditional national song.

In 1978, the military dictatorship of Olusegun Obasanjo replaced the national anthem “Arise O compatriots” with the more traditional “Nigeria, We hail thee.” This change was intended to be made by the bill.

The state administration expressed its desire for all schools in the state to begin singing the returning national song during morning assemblies in a formal announcement.

School principals in both public and private institutions are hereby obligated to teach their students the national anthem and have them sing it from this point on.

Schools in Osun State are required by law to play the new national anthem, which was authorized by the federal government not long ago.

Consequently, it is the responsibility of every school principal, whether public or private, to guarantee compliance in their respective institutions.

“As a matter of duty, it is expected that the new anthem be rendered during their various morning assemblies.”
