National Anthem: NOA released official version- DG


The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has explained that the official version of the National Anthem it unveiled remains the correct lyrics approved in the act signed by President Bola Tinubu on May 29, 2024.


The Director General of the Agency, Mallam Issa-Onilu, clarified inquiries from the media on the correct lyrics of the new national anthem, saying as an act of the Parliament, the NOA is duty-bound to only promote the official version.

He also advised the media to check the Act signed by the President as approved by the National Assembly to confirm the version as released by the NOA.



In his words,” The official version that we issued remains the correct lyrics. We are making an effort to standardise the instrumental and audio versions before we release it to the public.”


The NOA had last week released the official version of the National anthem to guide citizens who might be unsure of the correct lyrics of the reintroduced old National Anthem.
