Ala- Ijere!

The great land of great warriors!


Land of great colonists soldier ants!


Indeed, thou art established to be great!

Amongst lands! thou art a lord!

Amongst peoples, thou art a prince!

Amongst kingdoms, thou art an overlord!

In wisdom, thou art wisest!

And in understanding, thou art very compassionate!

Great Ndi-ijere!

Great Eze-ijere!
