After Years Of Marriage To A Nigerian, Man Expresses Annoyance Over His Inability To Become A Citizen

An expatriate who has been married to a Nigerian woman complains about his inability to become a Nigerian citizen.

He complained about the Nigeria law that doesn’t allow men to gain citizenship through their wives nationality.

He wrote;

“I may have to leave Nigeria for a few months because of the absurd law that I can’t use my Wife’s nationality to gain citizenship because she’s a woman. Yet if I were a Nigerian man. Marrying her would grant her the ability to gain citizenship here. Second class women. ??

“And my contract is nearly over and I will need a new expatriate quota for my residency here.”

When asked why he wants a Nigerian citizenship, he replied that he lives here and wants “our children to be brought up here and know their culture and family.”
