Something serious must have happened to trigger this reaction. I know of situations were Nigeria has abandoned her own to the wolves.

But my brother, it is on the rash side and you will very likely to regret it.

Nigeria, might not last that long; so why take such a decision?

Calm down and look to obtain dual nationality for the meantime.

Home is home.

The only way to denounce your nationality is to die - man, instead of coming here to ask a silly question, please drink acid, or some poisonous stuff and Nigeria will be happy that another has just denounced her, Good luck boy o boy.

I believe Babaearly is not unpatriotic in his quest to denounce his Nigerian citizenship.

My advice to him is to simply allow his passport renewal to lapse and when sanity returns to the political and general situation in Nigeria. He can then reactivate his nationality.

Why not have a clean break.

Since you are not technically a Nigerian anymore would you still visit Nairaland?

From your post, it is clear you have already denounced your Nigerian citizenship a million times.

However, to renounce your Nigerian citizenship, I suggest you get a lawyer and sign an affidavit at your local court in Nigeria then place an AD in a national paper declaring same.

If you're abroad, you do the same and send a copy to the Nigerian embassy in your country of residence, just make sure there's a printed AD in Nigerian national daily paper and one in the country of residence which will stand as evidence.

Good luck my brother and farewell.

You can do this legally.

Go to a court of law and declaring you want to renouce your Nigerian citizenship.

If you dont have any other citizehshp, you become 'stateless' and illegal resident of Nigeria or whereever you are NOW!

Basically in LAW you dont exist anymore.

Lineage is different from citizeship!

There's a process you have to go through.
