The Nigeria Within
There is a country within every Nigerian
A country not restricted by geography, currency,
language or religion.
A country who knows not the taste of colonialism
And has no civil war weighing on its conscience.
There is a nation within every Nigerian
A nation so great that it can achieve anything
A nation of peace, unity and progress,
A nation that inspired our founding fathers.
There is a Nigeria within every Nigerian
A Nigeria we must always reveal
Every time the Nigeria we live in makes a wrong turn
For in the absence of such unwavering loyalty
The Nigeria we call home
Will end up very far from greatness.
