“Indeed, the youths are happy with him for his sincere hope and meaningful plans for the next generation. As a matter of fact, the old National Anthem is better considering how meaningful it is, but as leaders of tomorrow, we strongly appeal that the last sentence of the Anthem, “Nigeria may be blessed,” be changed to either “Nigeria shall be blessed” or “Nigeria must be blessed.” That is our passionate appeal to Mr. President.

‘Nigeria may be blessed’ did not give the youths or Nigerians an assured hope but a conditional hope. We should be certain about the future of our dear country.

“I therefore appreciate the decision of Mr President for reverting back to the old anthem .
