Adams Oshiomole's wife and 334 other foreigners get Nigerian citizenship

Yesterday, a total of 335 foreign nationals were granted citizenship by the Nigerian Government after statutory clearance and due diligence by the relevant security agencies and Mrs Iara Oshiomhole, Wife of former Governor of Edo, Adams Oshiomole‎, who hails from Cape Verde was one of the recipients.
 
Abdulrahman Dambazau the Minister of interior who presented the certificates of citizenship to the foreigners charged them to be good ambassadors of Nigeria.  

Dambazau in his remarks said that 335 applicants were approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) in January, out of the over 500 foreigners that applied.  

He explained that 245 of the foreigners approved were granted Citizenship by‎ Naturalisation while 90 were by Registration, mainly foreign women married to Nigerians. 

The last time a similar ceremony was conducted was in December, 2013. It's the duty of the Ministry of Interior and the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) to process applications for Naturalisation from foreign nationals who have stayed/lived in Nigeria for a minimum of 15 years and those by Registration who are mainly married to Nigerians.

So this is what change looks like. It normally takes years upon years to get not Nigerian citizenship especially for women married to Nigerians. I guess Uncle Adams fast tracked his wife's own! Change abi? Lol

Hmmmmmmmm. Hausa people are also descended from adam just like you. They are your brothers and sisters wheather you like it or not. And just vecause you come from a region where u are fortunate to be born in a reasonable religion and culture does not me you should stereotype others and treat them as inhuman. I doubt if you even trully know the ordinary hausa man and not the almajiri u know on the street or the corrupt hausa politician that is no different from an igbo politician. Be careful before ethnic hate takes you to hell

Corruption in progress- I have friends who have lived in Nigeria over 20 years and they have to keep renewing their applications to stay because our immigration refuses to act but here comes a beauty married to a gorilla (who happens to be one of the biggest thieves in the land) and she gets hers just after 3 years, Where is the justice in this???
