The President explained that out of the 286 foreign nationals presented with certificates of Nigerian Citizenship, 208 received certificates for Naturalization, while 78 got certificates by Registration.

"You are expected to abide by the ideals and Institution of the Nigerian National Flag, Anthem, Pledge and respect for all Constituted Authorities.

"All those concerned with Immigration matters are to offer our new citizens quick legal identification. Also, their Local Governments should assist with their integration in the local community to enable them to enjoy all the entitlements of a Nigerian citizen," he said.
