I love you just the way you are
Through the storms my ship will sail till I hit the coast,
war knocks out our harmony,
Insurgencies cripples our growth,
corruption the rotten egg of decadence,
unemployment a tool of criminal activities,
greed for power,
political instability and much more.
Nonetheless, how can I reject my parents beacause they're bad?
when I change my citizenship will my blood be changed too?
I'll hang on to the post till peace is finally hoisted,
I'll accept the bad and bleed to make it good,
how else could I be patrotic?
When I weighed the pains, curses and negativities,
I see joy, blessings and positivities outweigh 'em.
I'm optimistic about my nation.
I draw my encouragement from the fact that we are;
the most populated and populous black nation on earth,
we are the gaint of Africa,
we've got loads of resources buried and untapped,
when it comes to spirituality, we the most religious nation on earth,
come over to my nation and enjoy the indegenous dialects (over 550)
despite the hardships, we are highly ranked amongst the happiest people on earth,
we ain't an exhaust in sports,
and lots more...........
I just love my Nation with all my body, mind and soul,
I'll die in defence of my Nation,
So, i will always remain pledged as thus
"I pledge to Nigeria my country.
To be faithful, loyal and honest.
To serve Nigeria with all my strength.
To defend her unity and uphold her honor and glory.
So help me God.
