The Looters’ Anthem

Arise O Lootatriots

The looter’s call obey

To loot our fatherland

With greed and zest and verve

The booties of our looters past

Shall never be recovered

To steal with patience and vigour

One nation ruled by bandits

Crooks and bribe-takers


O God of subsidy

Protect our bribery scams

Guide our looters right

Help our greed the loots to steal

In debts and terrorism we grow

And looting day and night

Fat foreign reserves plundered

To build a nation where luck

And cabals shall reign



I pledge to the umblerra of my party

To be greedy, clueless and corrupt

To loot Nigeria with all my strength

To defend our lootitude

And uphold our mansions and billions

So let us loot

    Illiteracy -we lacked the knowledge to know that Political leaders are to serve us and not to be worshipped. Poverty will not allow the masses to say no to selling their vote to corrupt Politicians, to receive bribe. fear of blackmail, assassins led us to this sorry state where we have no leader in government. May God help us.
