WTF?<br /><br />Why not campaign for reciprocity in citizenship qualification. In other words Nigerians would have to be resident for 15 years in the UK before applying for citizenship and in terms of citizenship through marriage the UK would be sensitive to gender and niether the male nor female Nigerian spouses would be entitled to citizenship.<br /><br />I am sure no Nigerian would complain of the UK treating everybody equally?Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8686769.post-24445175751376289472009-06-11T14:32:30.559+01:002009-06-11T14:32:30.559+01:00@reality check, international parental kidnapping ...@reality check, international parental kidnapping happens all over the world. http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/18/usc_sec_18_00001204----000-.html<br />this is a U.S. statute that attempts to address the issue.<br /><br />of course a mother can kidnap her own child, since the child belongs to the father as well. unless you are coming from the sexist position that children really belong to the mother and the dad is just an interloper? instead of throwing out some silly comment about &quot;how nigerians think&quot; why don&#39;t you educate yourself on the issue. <br /><br />if a woman takes her child to a foreign land, away from the father, it is kidnapping and a crime in many countries. there is a current case between a US man and one in brazil that stems from this issue. There was also the Cuba/US issue involving elian gonzalez a few ears agoAnonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8686769.post-74598031533376366722009-06-11T13:29:10.282+01:002009-06-11T13:29:10.282+01:00Are you planning to be Nigerian...go back to Engla...Are you planning to be Nigerian...go back to England please we dont want racists like you pretending to love us when it is money and untapped opportunities you are really seeking.<br /><br />Please leave Nigeria you racist twat.sheik abdulahihttp://www.channelstv.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8686769.post-22740385842226329532009-06-11T09:05:14.868+01:002009-06-11T09:05:14.868+01:00I&#39;d say, &quot;not yet uhuru&quot; I bet you ...I&#39;d say, &quot;not yet uhuru&quot;<br /><br />I bet you a bottle of your preferred, ten years from now, the NIS will still be demanding this offensive requirement in the name of due process.<br /><br />@ Anon.
