How To Stop Being a Nigerian

Thanks to GEJ I've heard frequently from Nigerians how they wished they weren't citizens of the country. I have decided to let you know how...actually looks easy but I know the "Nigeria factor" would set in. You'll probably have to bribe to renounce citizenship. Anyway, I got it from the Nigeria constitution.

Renunciation of Citizenship
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.


  1. I know a person or two who might be willing to try it...just make sure u have another nationality lined up to take it's place.. lol
    Ghana maybe recruiting.

  2. I can't renounce Nigeria for Ghana...Nigeria is better off, we only have incompetent Rulers.

  3. Well, I am a Biafran o! *wavin Biafran flag*

    1. You are NOT a BIAFRAN, you are CONFUSED.
