On the same day he was sworn in, he announced that “fuel subsidy is gone.”

This statement alone unleashed untold hardship on Nigerians as fuel prices skyrocketed immediately, coupled with food, services, and other necessities.

Ever since then, Nigeria has been growling under harsh economic conditions as the inflation rate and naira devaluation are on the rise.

Amidst these challenges, President Bola Tinubu has signed into law the bill seeking to reintroduce the old national anthem.

Senate President Godswill Akpabio announced this at the joint sitting of the senate and house of representatives on Wednesday, May 29.

Akpabio said the president signed the bill into law on Wednesday morning.

The Senate passed legislation to swap the national anthem from “Arise, O Compatriots” to “Nigeria, We Hail Thee.”
