IMAGINE NIGERIA

                      IMAGINE  NIGERIA.
Imagine  Nigeria,
Becoming  a  sweet  fruit
Like  my  orange  juice,
Imagine  Nigeria
With  patriotic  youths
Who  speck  truth  and
Make  my  future  look
Good,
Imagine  Nigeria
That  education  carry’s  a
Concrete  foundation,
Becomes  a  national  tool
Towards  economic  civilization.
Imagine  Nigeria
Where  the  Elders   give  me
Shelter,
As  helicopters  isn’t  only
For  the  god  fathers,
Imagine  Nigeria
My  area  without  malaria
Where  the  health  system
Isn’t  a  trap  wearing  danger,
Imagine  Nigeria
During  the  good  and  bad,
We  all  stick  together.

II

Imagine  Nigeria
Where  majority  is  happy  to
Sing  her  slogan,
Infants  carry  my  flag  high
On  her  shoulders.
Imagine  Nigeria
That  my  export  moves  round
The  world,
Without  corruption  been  her
Escort.
Imagine  Nigeria
Where  terrorism  isn’t  the
MilitarY  salary,
And  unmask  every  stranger
Within  her  territory.
Imagine  Nigeria
Where  tension  isn’t  collected
Before  pension, instead
The  aged  gather  for  happy
Recreation. 
Imagine  Nigeria
That  electricity  lights  up
This  city
Its  connected  with  easy  and
Distributed  for  almost  free.

III
Imagine  Nigeria
Where  all  my  blames  are  not
Left  for  the  leaders,
Instead, first  caution  our  nuclear
Bread  winner.
Never  curse  Nigeria
All  I  depend  is  these  natural
Mineral,
I  can  never  reverse  the
Desperate  immigrant,
Looking  forward  to  construct  a
Beautiful  new  river  on  
Another  land.
Imagine  Nigeria
When  industries  employ  my
Indigence
And  never  appoint  by  your  community,
Refineries  doesn’t  pollute  the  high
Sea  and  kill my  cat  fishing.
Imagine  Nigeria
That  farming  is  encouraged
By  modernized  planning,
Imagine  Nigeria
The  prosperity  sister
Make  big  plans  from  your
Little  area.
My  governor  isn’t  a  magician.
Imagine  Nigeria
Beautified  with  Iroko
Sky  scrapers, and	
Ordained  the  genuine  giant
Of  AFRICA.
                                                                                                                                      HABIB  AKEWUSOLA.
