Nigeria Grants Citizenship To 385 Foreigners

The Nigerian government has granted citizenship to 385 foreign nationals residing in the country.

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola disclosed this on Wednesday to State House Correspondents, at the end of this week’s meeting of the Federal Executive Council, presided over by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.

He said the council approved 317 of the applicants were granted citizenship by naturalization while 68 were granted by registration, adding that all the applicants met the requirements for such an honour.

“Federal Executive Council at its meeting today approved the granting of Nigeria’s citizenship by naturalization to 317 applicants and Nigeria’s citizenship by registration to 68 applicants.

“Those granted citizenship have met all the constitutional and administrative requirements for the grant of Nigerian citizenship,” Aregbesola explained.

The Minister also disclosed that the council approved a special fire detection and alarm system to be installed in all firefighting stations across the country.

“At the same meeting, the council approved the full business case for a project on National Fire Detection and Alarm System, incorporating life safety systems, networking, monitoring and dispatching in real time.

“This will be through a Public Private Partnership arrangement. At the completion of the project, Nigerians who so desire would subscribe to an automatic fire alarm system that if you have in your house, will raise an alarm at each of the fire service stations nationwide,” he said.

The Interior Minister said the project would be at no cost to the government and it would be fully digitized thus facilitating prompt response to any fire emergency
