A NON-NIGERIAN ACCUSES A BONA FIDE NIGERIAN OF BEING A FOREIGNER


When a non-Nigerian accuses a bona fide Nigerian of being a foreigner you begin to appreciate why those that have insisted on calling Nigeria a zoo may have a point. 

It is only in Nigeria that a man whose father was from Niger Republic can accuse others of being foreigners!

It is a historical fact that the northern Cameroon joined Nigeria after the 1961 plebiscite. 

But under under international law, their status should be that of natural born having regard to the fact that the entity called Nigeria was not a natural homogeneity but an assemblage of various geographical entities like; south west, south east, north west, north central, etc. Such was northern Cameroon.

So what is applicable to other entities automatically applies to that region.

When the constitution talks about secondary citizenship, it applies to individual applicants who are adopted by naturalisation and not regions who came in under plebiscite
