Like the green of the field, we are rooted, sprouting conspicuously wherever we go.
The craving for success drives us forward and fuels our resolve, even amidst the absence.
We’ve learnt to smile in the face of bitterness and pain, cos lifes sting we know too well.
From our individual struggle the world knows our name, a nation of white and green.
Dare to be me, dare to be a Nigerian, and you’ll view the world from a point like no other.
Happy independence day Nigeria.
