Zenith Labour Party Chairman applauds National Assembly for passing Bill to repeal current National Anthem ….. Says he has been vindicated

The National Chairman of Zenith Labour Party, Chief Dan Nwanyanwu has commended the National Assembly for passing the bill to repeal the current national anthem and revert to the original National Anthem which commenced with the Nigeria’s Independence on October 1st,1960.

Chief Dan Nwanyanwu stated this today Monday 27th 2024,during a Press conference at the party National Secretariat in Abuja .
Nwanyanwu who also congratulated the lawmakers,said he felt vindicated by the noble act of 10th National Assembly which he said was in complete consonance with his Presidential Manifesto for the 2023 Presidential Election where he vigorously canvassed for the return to Nigeria’s old national anthem.
” What the National Assembly has done,has not only proved that it is sensitive to the yearning’s of the people but it’s also abundantly clear that there was no justifiable reason to have tampered with the 1960 National Anthem of Nigeria to the extent of replacing it with a meaningless anthem that makes mockery of Nigeria’s diversity and yearning for unity.
He said”The National Anthem of a country is so symbolic that it becomes strange that when Military adventurists without any form of consultation or logic, repealed Nigeria’s charished National Anthem by military fiat.Many countries of the world have retained their National Anthem for several centuries as long as they existed as a Nation.Nigeria unfortunately has become a guinea pig that everything is experimented on without a convincing reason.
“The 1960 National Anthem of Nigeria touches the very core of our diversity, and religious complexities.
Nwanyanwu further stated that the National Anthem evoked emotions and the call for a united Nigeria where equity justice will reign supreme with no citizen oppressed and a section being preponderant over others with clear equity of citizens.
“These are the reasons I gave when I canvassed for the reverting to the original National Anthem.
” I joined all well meaning Nigerians in commending the National Assembly and its leadership for their courage and patriotism in this regard
“I urged Mr President to waste no time assenting to this bill without delay and history will record the enactment of this landmark Act to his credit”Chief Dan Nwanyanwu added.
The Zenith Labour Party also seized the opportunity to commend President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the achievements recorded since he became Nigeria’s democratically elected President.
