Nollywood actress and politician Kate Henshaw has frowned at the decision of President Bola Tinubu’s led administration to reinstate the old national anthem.

She particularly faulted the timing of the change, querying how the return to the old anthem was going to tackle the hardship in the country.

The movie star lamented that the country is facing “excoriating hardship and lack of good governance on every level.”

“In the midst of excoriating hardship & lack of good governance on every level but not to worry, going back to a colonial anthem will be a soothing balm and inject patriotism back into our veins, a much-needed drug,” she wrote on her X handle.

In another post, Henshaw wrote, “The labour of our heroes past… o ti lo [is gone].”

President Bola Tinubu on Wednesday signed the National Anthem Bill 2024 into law to reinstate the old anthem, “Nigeria, We Hail Thee.”
