Abati’s post us reproduced hereunder in extenso:

”Officially 4 years today, 15th of May! @realtalkwithkike

“Guess what Kiki! We’ve got forever to go in each other’s arms.

“Kiki, you are a tough cookie, and your stubbornness is next to none. But,Your positivity and kindness overshadow your naughtiness. We’ve had 3 misunderstanding in 4 years and well handled. Your enterprising nature, hard work, and adorable spirit make you truly special though too trusting.

“I jumped on the boat to sail with you because I see more than just a future with you. You are my ride-or-die, and I’m 100% loyal to you. I gave your Dad my word, and I will keep it until the end of my time! Kiki you made your choice against many odds and I’m always ready to take a million steps against those odds.

“This first slide is our first official intimate picture where we were both conscientious about our journey from working collaboratively to accepting my proposal to living in our purpose. Gracing your precious finger with that engagement ring that night reframed my world into another existence of possibilities. You’re my conscious choice and the longing of my world. You’re my closest person on earth, the owner of my heart, and my safe haven. Trust me when I say marriage with you balances me out and brought alot of healing for me.

On our 5th anniversary next year, I’m coming back to your family to pay another bride price as a renewed sense of devotion and dedication to your happiness.

“I may have a million truths to prove you but I need a lifetime to do that. Keep being you Kiki. As I say to you everyday, I love you Kiki! Cheers to us Iyawo,E @realtalkwithkike”

National Anthem: Nigeria switches from fatherland to motherland

Published

By Francesca Hangeior

The Federal Republic of Nigeria, today, officially reverted to the National Anthem that heralded its independence as a sovereign Nation.

President Bola Tinubu, after he met a joint session of the National Assembly, signed into law, the adoption of the old National Anthem, “Nigeria, We Hail Thee.”

“Nigeria, We Hail Thee” was adopted as Nigeria’s first national anthem on October 1, 1960.

The anthem’s lyrics were written by Lillian Jean Williams, a British expatriate who lived in Nigeria when it achieved independence.

Frances Berda composed the music for “Nigeria, We Hail Thee.”

However, the second national anthem, “Arise, O Compatriots,” was adopted in 1978.

The lyrics of the now jettisoned anthem were a combination of words and phrases taken from five of the best entries in a national contest.

The words were put to music by the Nigerian Police Band under the directorship of Benedict P. Odiase (1934–2013).

The Nigerian national anthem lyrics were created by five people: P. O. Aderibigbe, John A. Ilechukwu, Dr. Sota Omoigui, Eme tim Akpan and B.A. Ogunnaike.

With the return to the old anthem, Nigeria officially switched from a ‘Fatherland’ to a ‘Motherland’.

Hereunder are the Three Stanzas of the old but now new National Anthem:

1. Nigeria we hail thee,
Our own dear native land,
Though tribe and tongue may differ,
In brotherhood we stand,
Nigerians all, and proud to serve
Our sovereign Motherland.

2. Our flag shall be a symbol
That truth and justice reign,
In peace or battle honour’d,
And this we count as gain,
To hand on to our children
A banner without stain.

3. O God of all creation,
Grant this our one request,
Help us to build a nation
Where no man is oppressed,
And so with peace and plenty
Nigeria may be blessed.
