The Face Of Nigeria

Omehia Emmanuel 2000 (Port Harcourt)



"THE FACE OF NIGERIA" By E.C Omehia

Nigeria O Nigeria,
A home of natural resources
Where two rivers meet in a confluence town
Full of her leaders who bastardise the system
In a disgruntled society full of bad people

A goddess of beauty
But with spineless leaders
In a country of racial prejudice
between the northerners and southerners

Nigeria!Nigeria!
The investment of the Ivory
Were cold hearted people reside
In the land of the Living and Dead
