Nigeria at 63


O Nigeria, my beloved land,
At 63, where do you stand?
With a rich history and culture so bright,
You’ve weathered storms through the darkest night.

From humble beginnings, you arose,
A nation of dreams, where hope glows.
Your people, resilient and strong,
Have overcome trials all along.

From Afrobeat to Nollywood’s fame,
Your talents and achievements we acclaim.
Your writers, artists, and athletes are so grand,
Have put Nigeria on the world stage at hand.

But challenges remain, we must confess,
Corruption, poverty, and insecurity distress.
Yet, amidst the trials, hope still shines,
A future brighter, where Nigeria defines.

For in the hearts of your people, we see,
A love for their country, deep and free.
With unity and purpose, we shall prevail,
And build a nation where all may excel.

So let us celebrate this Independence Day,
And recommit to building a better way.
For Nigeria, our beloved land,
At 63, we stand hand in hand.
