By birth-namely- (a) Every person born in Nigeria after the date of independence (October 1, 1960), either of whose parents or any of whose grandparents belongs or belonged to a community indigenous to Nigeria;
Provided that a person shall not become a citizen of Nigeria by virtue of this section if neither of his parents nor any of his grandparents was born in Nigeria.
(b) Every person born outside Nigeria either of whose parents is a citizen of Nigeria.
(2) In this section, “the date of independence” means the 1st day of October 1960.
Going by above,
i. Since Nigeria NEVER existed until October 1, 1960 as such NOBODY could have been said to be indigenous to a NON_EXISTENT entity.
ii. Even if you were born on on or after October 1, 1960, the very fact that your parents were not Nigerians, that is their date of birth predates October 1, 1960, the you are NOT a Nigerian
iii. Therefore the only people that can claim Nigeria Citizenship are:
a, Anyone whose parent were born on or after October 1, 1960, most like people born in 1980s and above
b. Anybody who obtained citizenship by registration
By simple implication, NONE of Nigerian leaders is a Nigerian and they should all pack their loads and go to the country – Lord Lugards’s British colony otherwise now non-existent aor abrogated Niger-area
