We

(For Kogi State 
NYSC 2012 'B' Corp 
Members)

Gazing at the 
beautiful igneous
We have stereo'd 
from our nests
Cooling by the 
warm cold rain
We have rail'd 
from our tracks

Welcomed by the 
grace of the solar 
star
We have lever'd 
from our air
Blessed by the 
behold of the 
confluence
We have canoe'd 
from our dens

She has groomed 
us
Bless our alma 
mater
She has breast-fed 
us
The Lord be with 
her

She recommended 
us
God elevate her
Her eyes still count 
on us
We refuse to fail 
her

Yes, we stretch 
our hand
To the very human 
humanity
We raise our hand
To the very divine 
divinity

On Asaya we are 
groomed
On Kabba soil we 
doff
From Kogi we 
serve
From the 
Confluence we 
salute

Today we speak 
Igala
Tonight we talk 
Ebira
Tomorrow we sing 
Okun
Tonow we 
command Nupe

Equipped from 
Asaya
We yield to the 
clarion
We carry our 
mother on our 
wings
Without 
cognizance to the 
meteorologists'

Nationals, great 
soldiers we are
Youths, peace is 
our first name
Sailors, we sail 
Nigeria to Canaan
Captors, we round 
up the vices

God bless Yakubu 
Gowon
Merci NT Okore-
Affia
Well done 
Anthony 
Enweonwu
Allah bless Nigeria.
