Love made you
And you stand before us all
A being with morals, pride and elegance
Show the world what a Nigerian woman is –
a fountain of sacrifice, patience and forgiveness.
Wisdom made you
So you could decide for yourself
Which way you would go
Show the world who a Nigerian woman is –
dry-eyed and brave; she faces each day with renewed vigor
Hope made you
So you could deliver the trampled women
Of our corrupt nation
Show the world why a Nigerian woman was created –
to become a mother to those who need one.
Truth made you
So you could be a voice to those who cannot speak
An ear to those who should be heard
Show the world when you become the Nigerian woman -6
The Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria.
