Nigeria…. The Giant Of Africa By Adunke Olatunji

As Nigeria turned 60 , I am green
Green with anger
Longing for the Nigeria of old
And green with pride
Seeing Nigeria as it soon will be

The streets are lined with men and women
Storefronts festooned with bales of green satin
and draped with white banners
Green-white-green flags flail in the air
Stripes that promise loyalty
And honor, faith and peace

If Nigeria were a woman
She would be in her matured-age
She would gird her loins with rich cloth
And wear her African hips with pride
Her husband would cleave unto her
And love her with careless abandon

She would sway with abundance
Arms lined with beads and copper
Of history and culture,
And languages and laughter
Her children would bask in her warmth
The sun ushering in its grace


She would do no harm
Could do no harm and
Did do no harm
But she is Nigeria, a country
My Country, Nigeria
Beloved trigger of Africa
She will take her place

Africa, The great land of beauty
Riches and honour
The gun of the world
But there you lie so helpless
Not as strong as you should be
Who’ll will pull your trigger

Nigeria, Oh my Nigeria
Trigger on Africa’s gun
When will you shoot Africa to stand up
And protect her children

Rise up Nigeria
Put down your load of corruption and greed
Rise up
Shoot Africa high
To stand strong
Never to lie low
To stay awake
Never to sleep

Battles were fought,
and blood was shed.
Life was lost,
and men were dead.

“FREEDOM” came with
A heavy price.
War is not pretty,
nor is it nice.

We can thank
the Lord above.
He gave us these Nigeria
a country we can love.

Men fought for our freedom,
and with their lives they did pay.
That’s why we celebrate
Independence Day.

We are the trigger of Africa
The Giant of Africa
Let us rise and shoot her high
To her place of dignity
Honour and Prestige

Arise from your slumber, giant of Africa, your land is still green,
there’s still breathe in you,
there’s hope for you
believe in yourself yet still,
and see you recover all your lost glory.
Your light will once shine again
Oh beautiful Nigeria!!

Happy 60th Birthday my Nigeria

Happy independence day my Nigeria





The power of freedom is essential and cannot be over emphasised.
Freedom is what makes us express our intention without trepidation. As the country celebrates her sixty (60) years of existence as an independent nation, we want to reiterate the importance of what we represent.

#TabithaNewLifeFoundation has the intention to liberate the suffering widows and widowers in any area of life where they have been caged. We are indeed excited to celebrate this freedom in its entirety…

Our hope is that more people will come into this fold and find joy of total independence.

In the light of this, we have decided to give out 60rechargecards to 60Widows & Widowers of different networks airtimevouchers to mark the day.

The first sixty lucky winners will emerge as we distribute for their pleasure.

We appreciate our partners and sponsors for their steadfastness and contributions in making this house stand.
Together we shall build for ever.

Happy independence wishes from Tabitha New Life Foundation
