These Kanu descendants are funny! You're majoring on someone saying Obama is or isn't a Kenyan, hence missing the point! Y'all claim it's in Nigeria's constitution that Nigerians with dual citizenship aren't allowed to hold public offices! Anyways, it's no surprise to hear such crap from the ever-lying, unintelligent, ever-deluded IPIGs!



The position of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and judicial pronouncements on the matter are very clear, instantly recognizable and have been unswerving in that- holding dual citizenship of Nigeria and another country will not serve as a bar to dual citizenship holder from contesting and/or holding elective post in Nigeria, but with a rider: PROVIDED that the individual holding the dual citizenship acquired his/her Nigerian nationality by BIRTH! Now the question should be: was the new NIA DG born in Nigeria? The answer is definitely YES!!!



Now let's even assume the IPIGs are right about the dual citizenship crap: Then why didn't you remind us when Ebelemi Jonathan appointed Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, who holds dual citizenship of Nigeria & the US as the minister of finance, & a freaking coordinating minister of the economy? You see how hypocritical these IPIGs are!

National Security Matters are not for every Tom, Dick and Harry, moreso for a man who has continuously flunk his NIA exams so many times, married to a morrocan a country who just got into ECOWAS coupled with a citizenship of Boko Haram friendly Chad etc, etc, is more than enough reason for the President to withdraw his approval. We will take back our dear FATHERLAND from the GRAVE-DIGGERS.
i don't think his dual citizenship should b an issue. If u are pointing fingers at his professional credentials am with u all d way

Obama is not a Kenyan citizen. He does not have a Kenyan passport, and has never sought Kenyan citizenship on the back of his father’s ancestry.
he doesnt need 2 seek it. Its citizenship by birth.there are many Nigerians who don't have passports but that doesn't mean they aren't Nigerians

Until housa/ fulani gets rid of tribalism and religious sentiment... until the housa /fulani starts seeing the difference b/w western education from islamic education, we still be backward.

Had Ahmed Abubakar ever worked with NIA in top ranking position even prior to the coming of Bubu?


No. President Obama is not a Kenyan citizen. It's somewhat complicated, but here are the basic facts

Since President Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, he is an American citizen by birth. When Obama was born in 1961, Kenya was not a sovereign state but a British overseas possession. Because Obama's father was a citizen of a British colony, Obama had dual American-British colonial citizenship at birth. When Britain granted Kenya its independence in 1963, Obama lost his British colonial citizenship. Technically, he then became a dual citizen of the US and Kenya but he automatically lost his Kenyan citizenship in 1984 when he turned 23. At the time, Kenyan law did not allow adults to hold dual citizenship, and Obama could have kept his Kenyan citizenship only by renouncing his American citizenship and swearing an oath of allegiance to Kenya. He did not do so. Under current Kenyan law, he could apply for and receive Kenyan citizenship because of his late father's citizenship, but I suspect the probability of that happening is pretty low.

Hi.. I don't like commenting much here but I needed to point out something to u..

One, there is no issue appointing him.. No problem at all. But the issue here is that nearly the entire security agencies heads in Nigeria are headed by people from the north.. That is not right bro. It is not even about the constitution alone.. It is about what is logically right.

Nigeria is a sensitive country.. It is a country with history of bloody civil war. A country where ethnic sentiments is the order of the day. It is improper of the president to only appoint people from one region to head strategic positions like this.

Buhri no try at all. Forget whatever u would say to justify this. I am sure deep down you, u understand what I am saying.

Appointments made so far in security and other strategic positions have been bias. Such can cause trouble if not that Nigerians are not all that violent. It is about the new NIA boss qualification, there are also qualified people from south.

It is becus of fear of ethnic domination that i av always suggested that Nigeria should return to regional system of govt. With this, each ethnic region can sort themselves out during appointments. Filling up the FG with people mostly from the north is an act that can provoke others.. That was why federal character was established becus fear of ethnic domination can cause war.

I think for all these nonsense sentiments to stop, I encourage youths who are reasonable to preach regional govt based constitution with a weakened central govt. Igbos may decide to retate their regional mayor, have their own capital and share investments among their states. Same goes to west, south south, north etc. This can help reduce the too much hate we experience at the center.


I don't get it, Buhari is appointing those he trusts why is that a problem? You simply believe that by having Northerners head posts in Nigeria it means there will be bias and that's the general problem with you people

Are you in essence trying to postulate that academic knowledge is irrelevant to successful living, to some extent you might be right but on a very low bar. The owner of Amazon, currently competing with Bill Gates as richest man in the world , graduated the top of his class, in fact he was the valedictorian. Stop this ideology that most richest people in the world are not educated, most of them started but along the line discover a befitting career and felt that continue studying till graduation might not be helpful to that vision that they bore.

Talk of education, imagine giving a sensitive and secret office to be headed by a loser, likely He is the type of student that pays others to write exams for him, cheat his way through to graduation but unfortunately there's no room for cheating in NIS internal assessment and performance employee exams that lead to his early retirement from the service. Only to be appointed head of same organisation with arrays of brilliant mind.


Is quite bad that he gladly accept the offer, because like his master, education is just a waste of time.

Also, you should know at that age, one cannot differentiate between propaganda and truth, so your prayer is of no significance and very unnecessary.

This is really sickening and people supporting this are Jihadist especially a certain Lion.. whatever who is Aregebsola's Jihad Agent..Have you ever heard of Herdsman attack in Osun state??That is why you have the Sultan of Sokoto coming to the inauguration of Oluwo who is a known islamic Jihadic apologist, a demonic gay occult and a fraudster!!..More like a stamp of authority..That is because the Jihadist feels that they have Osun State in there pocket...But God once again is gradually upstaging all their plans just as Senator. Ademola Adeleke of PDP defeated Mudasiru Hussein of APC and that victory will be completed in this year's Governorship election in Osun state...I dont want to sound like an alarmist but believe me when i say the Jihad is on ooo....Every security outfit is firmly in the hands of the Jihadist...Bosun Emmanuel saw it coming and it is playing out right on the face of Nigerians and nobody seems to care!!...Heinous events of the coming months will shock a whole lots of people...And they seems ready to crush any dissenting voice with maximum force..Benue people watch your back ooo...IGP of police Ibrahim Idris will not protect you ooo!!.He is an in Law to Etsu Nupe and they are all down for the Jihad...Don't be caught unawares...Be watchful and be prayerful!

The OP's story says people with dual citizenship, no matter the circumstances, are prohibited from holding any public office in Nigeria, which is a BIG LIE because there's a clause to that law in the constitution, & the new NIA DG clearly fulfils that clause of the law by being a Nigerian BY BIRTH! Now if the OP could lie about that, what makes you think he's telling the truth about him failing promotion exam twice? Truth is you Jonathan sycophants only believe him because it suits your bias!
