Nigerian National Anthem

  1. Arise, O compatriots, Nigeria's call obey
    To serve our fatherland
    With love and strength and faith
    The labour of our heroes past
    Shall never be in vain
    To serve with heart and might
    One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.
  2. Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause
    Guide our leader’s right
    Help our youth the truth to know
    In love and honesty to grow
    And living just and true
    Great lofty heights attain
    To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign.

  The Nigeria High Commission, London, notes with deep concern, the teeming presence of Nigerians at the High Commission on public holidays for services relating to passport renewals, Emergency Travel Certificates (ETCs), visas, and other consular issues.

  We wish to reiterate to Nigerians in the United Kingdom and the general public that the High Commission will not be opened during the holidays declared by the Federal Government of Nigeria and Her Majesty's Government. .

  In view of the foregoing, we implore Nigerians and the entire members of the public to always revert to the High Commission's website for information on opening days and hours of the Mission before embarking on a visit to the High Commission..

  Please note that applicants for Nigerian passports who are given biometric appointments on public holidays (through the appointment generated by the Nigeria Immigration Service, Abuja) will have an opportunity to visit the Nigeria High Commission, London, at a convenient date thereafter for biometrics within the next two weeks.

  Nigeria High Commission, London, remains committed to providing effective and efficient service delivery to Nigerians and the entire public in the United Kingdom and hereby seeks further cooperation of all in this regard.

Nigeria High Commission,
London, United Kingdom.
