Foreigners confer with Nigerian citizenship

Two hundred and eighty-six foreigners conferred with Nigerian citizenship have explained why they chose to become Nigerians at a time the country was going through some challenges.

Reports say, two hundred and eight of them were conferred citizenship status by naturalization and the remaining seventy-eight by registration.

A German businessman, Mr. Hubertus Diers, explained why he chose to become a Nigerian after forty-two years traversing all the nook and cranny of the country.

He is among the two hundred, eight-six foreigners including eight-six Lebanese, fourteen Britons, and four Americans conferred with Nigerian citizenship.
