  1. I
    Nigerian leaders
    fail in errors,
    to build world-class Hospitals,
    in Nigeria,
    instead they travel abroad for Medical Checkups.

II
Nigerian leaders
tail in terrors,
for better roads,
in Nigeria.

III
Nigerian leaders
hail in horrors,
for lack of regular Electricity power supply,
in Nigeria.

IV
Nigerian leaders
Jail masses,
in perpetual poverty and slavery,
by their been above the law,
in Nigeria.

V
Nigerian leaders
nail their masses,
of little error but mail themselves,
while enjoy all privileges.

VI
Nigerian leaders
have become pail of unequal affluences,
in neglect of their masses.

VII
Nigerian leaders
have become rail of foreign Influences,
but not so to Nigeria.

VIII
Nigeria leaders
sail across oceans and climes,
but with little input to Nigeria.

IX
Nigeria leaders
Vail no longer their masses,
but wail their masses of hardships.

X
Nigerian masses
bail your common destinies,
by standing side-by-side,
work in unity of one voice abound,
against clueless noise around.
