NOA Replies senator Akpabio, says the National Anthem version they released is the correct one


The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has stated that its version of the new national anthem released last week is the correct one.


The agency released a statement on the new national anthem after Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, pointed out errors in lines three, five, and 18 of the national anthem released by the NOA during Tuesday’s plenary.


While responding to the said error, Director-General of National Orientation Agency, Lanre Issa-Onilu, in a statement issued by the agency’s Deputy Director of Press, Paul Odenyi, stated that it remain the corrected lyrics approved in the Act signed by President Bola Tinubu. He also claimed that Senate President was misled.

The statement added;

“The official version that we issued remains the correct lyrics. We are making an effort to standardise the instrumental and audio versions before we release it to the public.”
