Rhyme Scheme: AAAA BBCD EFGH AACD IJKLIM

With a spirit and zeal of sovereigntyA
Awolowo Azikiwe and Bello with many others championed the journeyA
With a determined tete a tete we became a nation snatched from the jaws of the mightyA
Decades upon decades the rightful structure laid was pulled down with a sole rulership interest of money money and moneyA
-
We once had leadersB
Now we have rulersB
How sweet and glorious would have been our freedomC
Now a sorry case as the kingdom is now drenched in greed domD
-
Wa Zo Bia with diverse tribes all together became oneE
Despite our numerous national make up artists rather than being sweet sixteen we are at sixty sadly wornF
Overhauling Restructuring till when shall we waitG
Sadly sweet we suffer and smile while our rulers without foresight keeps gobbling the foreign nation's baitsH
-
We were once positively mightyA
Now we are most often flightyA
How sweet and glorious would have been our freedomC
Now a sorry case as the kingdom is now drenched in greed domD
-
With a comforting and prayerful poetic heart I writeI
Oh God of creation I beseech you to direct our noble causeJ
Guide our leaders that have turned to rulers right and most passionately help our youths the truth to knowK
For us all in love and honesty to grow and living just and trueL
Oh Almighty God help us attain a great lofty heightI
With genuine freedom devoid of greed dom to build a nation where justice shall reignM
