NIGERIA IS 50-GOLDEN GREEN,WHITISH GOLD

NIGERIA IS 50-GOLDEN GREEN,WHITISH GOLD  

Sallah is just a breathe away, 

I hear the bells jingle 

Like Christmas and New Year 

Come to mingle. 

  

Summer is just a step away, 

I hear the birds beckon 

Like light and water 

Come to reckon. 

  

Regards to Lugard,favour above, 

Honey and spice,well and manna 

Come to dwell on our land 

Peace from above come aboard. 

  

Azikiwe,Balewa,Awolowo, 

Men of honour and valour, 

I hear the well of blackgold 

Smell of riches and wishes. 

  

I wish to be in El-dorado, 

To live in the city with electricity, 

When the minute of resolution comes 

The moment of solutions shall adorn. 

  

Oh God of creation arise, 

Let our leaders think aright, 

Corruption is pestilence revolt on creation, 

Tell them the ways of justice to trail. 

  

Adeola Yusuf Amuni
