According to the statement, the Agency’s Director General, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, provided the assurance after several versions of the anthem appeared on social media, with community Orientation and Mobilization Officers (COMOS) also reporting citizens’ confusion with the correct lyrics, instrumental, and audio renditions of the anthem.

They have questioned whether the stanzas are the national prayer.

The Director General further stated that a decision on whether any of the stanzas would be approved as a national prayer will be made following the requisite clearance procedure.

He asked government agencies that wish to play the song at their functions to contact the Agency for an official copy of the new anthem.
