How Can I Revoke My Nigerian Citizenship?

How Can I Denounce My Nigerian Citizenship?

Please, i no longer want to be called a Nigerian. I don't need her citizenship anymore.

How do i go about this? Is there a legal way to handle this? Or should i use the media to announce it?

I need your advice guys, no beef.

@OP: An easy way out. Go jump in the lake and you'll cease to be a Nigerian.

We will be so glad to write on your tombstone: One less

Dear Fellow Citizen of the Federal Republic,

If you revoke your citizenship: then one day in any other country they will disappoint you like we have done and will you keep revoking citizenships?

Enjoy what's good about Naija: do what you can to make it better and then live your life in full: NEPA or No NEPA!

What most mortals do not remember is that in 500 years the period 1960-2010 will be just a small dot in the history of Naija: the best is yet to come.

Good luck to you and Good Luck to me!

Ezeagu stop showing that biafra of biafra. you want igbo people to kill you. Look if you lock igboman shop for one day just because uwazubike. He go kill you. For get biafra, it would never happen.

You have one option to follow the north and take 70% of the oil. 70% na we dey talk and you would still be citizen of republic of benin if you are born in our area or you live here.

• People in Enugu will tell those in Yenagoa that their oil flows down from Enugu.

• Whenever a major tourist centre wants to be built in Calabar people in Onitsha will hold it back till it finally dies.

• There will be oil leaching.

• Roads, hospitals, schools, etc will be held back from being funded.

• People in Abakaliki will choose leaders of those in Umuahia as they believe they are "born to rule".

• There will be religious uprisings and other riots that are related to religion such as the beheading of church leaders.

• Last but not least there will be no sense of national pride of having a common background, heritage and ancestors. Indeed all those problems will be exactly the same in a new country.

Its funny I cant even blame people for wanting their own country, but if one thinks the problem of current Nigeria wont carry over to any new country ,they're fulling themselves. . . . . esp the places in Nigeria where different ethnicities are based. we know those regions

dont even start with me.

did i say i liked the WAY IT WAS BEING RUN?

i just love my people, and dividing is not the answer.

so shove it!

i dont feel like going back and doing research, i dont think the igbo elites will be any different.

itll proably be the same scenario.

so dividing isnt exactly the answer.

there are better ways than just being tribalist and blaming everything on everyone else.

so dont drag my name in that bullshit.

once again, you are misquoting me.

using my name just because im igbo.

there has never been once that i said i would want to see Biafra happen, i like Nigeria the way it is.

just because im igbo doesnt mean i agree with aloy or beaf or ikeyman or whatever.

stop shouting biafra. it would never happen. It is only a silly igbo that still dream of biafra. when really most igbo depend on trading. How do they feed thier family. Uwazubike has no billion dollar in account for them.

And akwa ibom and others are you sure would ever go with you.

The igbos should think careful what is best for them. But this shout of biafra is silly.

The only biafra possible is this one in the picture below, if that is what you are asking for go lucky.

For people who still support the current state of things in Nigeria for the sake of being patriotic, I say to you all wake up please from your sleep. As the world resources runs dry with increament in world population, foreign well organised countries will directly start invading silly un organised weak countires of which Nigeria is one of them. I mean, currently we are been invaded but indirectly but soon, mark my words its going to be direct confrontation. Our selfish pride is killing us. Nigeria should humble itself and learn how to transform itself from already self transformed countries like China, Malaysia, Singapore etc.

Lol, the thread starter is a clown! You do not need any advice to renounce your citizenship, just use the new passport that you have. I am naija for life, even I do not have a Naija passport, nothing will change that,

All those fake nlanders who gave insults more than ideas i say you are the greatest fools alive because most of you are patriotic to your ethnicity and not to a failed state that is Nigeria, most of you are acting out false patriotism and you guys are the same bastards who support freedom of speech. Someone showed us what the constitution said about denouncing your citizenship, i bet most of y'all fools never knew the constitution contained that.

Good talk! I am hundred percent with you guyz. Before I use to think that Nigeria is such a great country full of intelligent people but after having the opportunity to mix up with other smaller African countries I realize how mumu we are. We are just noise makers that are so lucky to have oil and that is exactly how other African countries see us. It is very annoying and very shameful to identify yourself as a Nigerian. Sorry guyz! I am not trying to sound so cynical about the whole thing but I think what I have just said is the truth.

In some country's you can not have dual citizenship. Germany for one, you have to renounce your other nationality to get a Germany passport. So anyone you know that has a legit German kpali at some point renounced dem naija citizenship.

Just because things are not working now doesn't mean they wont. if the citizens of that country you so eagerly want to claim denounced their own country, who would have built it?

(2) Any registration of a person as a citizen of Nigeria or the grant of a certificate of naturalisation to a person who is a citizen of a country other than Nigeria at the time of such registration or grant shall, if he is not a citizen by birth of that other country, be conditional upon effective renunciation of the citizenship or nationality of that other country within a period of not more than five months from the date of such registration or grant.

29. (1) Any citizen of Nigeria of full age who wishes to renounce his Nigerian citizenship shall make a declaration in the prescribed manner for the renunciation.

(2) The President shall cause the declaration made under subsection (1) of this section to be registered and upon such registration, the person who made the declaration shall cease to be a citizen of Nigeria.

(3) The President may withhold the registration of any declaration made under subsection (1) of this section if-

(a) the declaration is made during any war in which Nigeria is physically involved; or

(b) in his opinion, it is otherwise contrary to public policy.

(4) For the purposes of subsection (1) of this section.

(a) "full age" means the age of eighteen years and above;

(b) any woman who is married shall be deemed to be of full age.

30. (1) The President may deprive a person, other than a person who is a citizen of Nigeria by birth or by registration, of his citizenship, if he is satisfied that such a person has, within a period of seven years after becoming naturalised, been sentenced to imprisonment for a term of not less than three years.

(2) The President shall deprive a person, other than a person who is citizen of Nigeria by birth, of his citizenship, if he is satisfied from the records of proceedings of a court of law or other tribunal or after due inquiry in accordance with regulations made by him, that -

(a) the person has shown himself by act or speech to be disloyal towards the Federal Republic of Nigeria; or

(b) the person has, during any war in which Nigeria was engaged, unlawfully traded with the enemy or been engaged in or associated with any business that was in the opinion of the president carried on in such a manner as to assist the enemy of Nigeria in that war, or unlawfully communicated with such enemy to the detriment of or with intent to cause damage to the interest of Nigeria.

31. For the purposes of this Chapter, a parent or grandparent of a person shall be deemed to be a citizen of Nigeria if at the time of the birth of that person such parent or grandparent would have possessed that status by birth if he had been alive on the date of independence; and in this section, "the date of independence" has the meaning assigned to it in section 25 (2) of this Constitution.

32.

This guy does not deserve to be a Nigerian if he has to resort to this medium to ask for information about how to relinquish his Nigerian Citizenship. Please don't come back begging back for your citizenship once Nigeria becomes a better country.

you can always renounce your citizenship. I think you need to have taken up another citizenship, and then send a letter of renunciation to the Nigerian consulate embassy of the country in which you have taken citizenship.
