      which Nigerian there sounded like an American. If you think anybody there sounded American, then you don’t know what American accent is.

      don’t mind them. People who have never heard an American speak will call someone’s Sudanese accent ‘American’.

    Err… which accent again o? I was even going to commend Battabox for using very down to earth presenters that the bulk of Nigerians can relate to. I had a good laugh at the video. Recently, I found that I couldn’t say the pledge correctly without closing my eyes. Shame on me shey? I think in many ways, remembering the pledge is like remebering all the lyrics of one’s secondary school anthem. It’s one of the things you never again have to recite after secondary school so it’s no surprise that people can’t really remember.

    We cant recite or remember the pledge because we dont mean whatever is said. I cant possibly remember when last i recited the pledge. Can the president recite it let alone those useless policians*straightface*I dont even care about the pledge sef.

    You people calling the pledge (and anthem) useless and meaningless are part of the problem with the country…the irony.

    I pledge to Nigeria my country
    To be faithful, loyal and honest
    To serve Nigeria with all my heart
    To defend her unity
    And uphold her honor and Glory
    So help me God.

    That all came back to me almost mechanically, even though I haven’t said the pledge in more than a decade. The real question is how well I’ve kept my pledge…

      Great Attempt!..You missed a word though..The third line should be ” To serve Nigeria with all my strength”
