The Federal government has granted citizenship to 385 foreign nationals, who have met the necessary requirements.

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, made the announcement on Wednesday after a meeting of the Federal Executive Council presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

OYO NEWS understands that of the 385 applicants, 317 were granted citizenship by naturalization while 68 were granted by registration for Nigerian citizenship.

Nigerian citizenship provides several benefits to foreign nationals, including the right to live and work in Nigeria, access to social services such as healthcare and education, and the ability to own property and businesses in the country.

The approval is a testament to Nigeria’s commitment to promoting inclusivity and diversity.

According to Aregbesola, all the applicants met the constitutional and administrative requirements for the grant of Nigerian citizenship.

In addition to the approvals, the Federal Executive Council also approved the installation of a special fire detection and alarm system in all firefighting stations across the country.

Aregbesola stated that the project would be carried out through a Public Private Partnership arrangement and would be fully digitized to facilitate prompt response to any fire emergency.

He also added that the project would come at no cost to the government.
