INDEPENDENCE DAY: Nigeria @ 60 -By Soliu Arowolo Adam

Written by Soliu Arowolo Adam

They said it's sixty years already

When our motherland was released from the bondage of the white men

Sixty years when we were given the freedom to think with our Cerebrum.

It is sixty years already

Since our motherland" The giant of Africa"

Was expected to be swimming in the ocean of prosperity.

But was rather preyed by the incisor of poverty

From her tears , her children wine

And laughed at her agonies and miseries.

It is sixty years already

When our forefathers sacrificed their souls

For our motherland to rise to her glory dancing above the sun.

But rather crawl like a limbless snail

Our patriotic fathers: MKO Abiola, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa and Nmadi Azikiwe

Alas this is not their dreamt Nigeria.

For axe of hatred and selfishness have divided us

We live as Nigeria, Oduduwa and Biafra

We poisoned love to death and let hatred live.

It is time to let the blood of unity flow in us

And enliven the spirit of the dying patriotism in us

For we shall get to our dream land.

A dream land where love will reign

And honey will flows in our doorsteps

Our motherland will be great again.
