Nigeria: We are all we have

2014-05-16 09:14

In 1960, a nation was born. Her first cry released from lungs filled with hope to become Africa’s greatest state. No sooner had Nigeria learnt to walk that she fell victim to internal conflict. The Nigerian dream suspended, men in arms began pushing personal agendas. Religion, ethnicity and greed, erecting walls of hostility in a nation whose destiny lies in the unity of her people. Listen to the call for unity from Timi Dakolo and when we are done listening, let us stand as a people united against terror, against corruption, against tribalism and let us rise to the challenge of defending our land, our Nigeria...our Africa.

Here we stand as a people

With one song: with one voice

We're a nation: undivided and poised

We will take our stand: and build our land

With faith: to defend what we love

Here we are as a people

With one heart: for one cause

We're determined: to rebuild and restore

Where freedom reigns: and truth prevails

A land where there's hope for us all (2x)

(Chorus)

We're all we have, we'll defend our land

We believe in this nation, and we know we'll get there

We're all we have, we'll defend our land

We believe in Nigeria and the promise she holds

And that one day we'll shine like the sun

We're a great nation

Though we are many people

Different tribes: different tongues

We're united in our strength and resolve

To uphold the honour of our land

And for generations to come

(Chorus)

We're all we have, we'll defend our land

We believe in this nation, and we know we'll get there

We're all we have, we'll defend our land

We believe in Nigeria and the promise she holds

And that one day we'll shine like the sun

We’re a great nation
