“Arise, O Compatriots” was adopted as Nigeria’s national anthem in 1978, with lyrics composed by John A. Ilechukwu, Eme Etim Akpan, B. A. Ogunnaike, Sota Omoigui, and P. O. Aderibigbe. It was performed by the Nigeria Police Band under the direction of B. E. Odiasse.

With the signing of the National Anthem Bill 2024, “Arise, O Compatriots” has been officially replaced by the old anthem, “Nigeria, We Hail Thee.”
