“The signing of the National Anthem and Student Loan Bills into law, which took less than 48 hours, is a testament to President Tinubu’s willingness to engage with the legislature and drive meaningful change.

“This anthem, with its familiar lyrics and stirring melody, evokes a sense of nostalgia and patriotism in the hearts of many Nigerians. It reminds us of our history, our struggles, and our triumphs. Its return is a welcome move that resonates with citizens from all walks of life.”

Agbese added that “under Speaker Abbas’ guidance, our parliament has witnessed unprecedented growth, productivity, and unity. His unwavering commitment to democracy, inclusivity, and progress has inspired us all to work towards a common goal: a better Nigeria for all citizens.”
