Solomon Buchi insists on not getting a Nigerian passport for his children

Nigerian writer, Solomon Buchi sparks controversy after his public decision to only get his children a British passport.

He revealed this via his Twitter account where he has received backlash for his statement.

The writer states that he would only get a British passport for his children and the decision to get a Nigerian one would be solely up to them.

Popular writer, Solomon Buchi.

According to him, there can only be patriotism when the citizen has pride in its government.

However, he has had his unfair share of the country and would not encourage his children to live there.

His post reads;

“My children will be British citizens by birth, and I’m not getting them a Nigerian passport/citizenship until they turn 18 and can decide if they want to get a Nigerian passport.

If you think I’m not patriotic, use that your patriotism to buy you a bag of rice for 10K.”

Some reactions to his post

@koshinspiration advised: “Please go ahead. No problem. They may have British passports, but they can never be British. Go and check that well. The Britons know themselves, and when the push comes to the shove, they will be told by the real Britons…😁”

@josh_uglyasf said: “The people who will come here to drag you for this, most of them desire to have this too for their kids and would not even want their kids to visit Nigeria let alone have pp but let’s do social media shenanigans”

@Desmuyee wrote: “Be calming down, sir..No matter where you go, remember the road that leads you home.”

@Bigstan1477 added: “My 3 kids are Americans! I see nothing wrong in this decision. I love your idea.”

@nuelnazzy opined: “That doesn’t still guarantee they will end up doing better in life than people birthed and rised in Nigeria. Just let them have friends in Melody Sha in case.”
