I regret not becoming a US Citizen – Chimamanda Adichie

Award-winning Nigerian writer Chimamanda Adichie has lamented over the state of her country Nigeria and her regrets as a Nigerian.

It appears almost everyone in Nigeria is currently fed up with the current administration and also the retrogression of the country. Many citizens have channeled their grievances through various social media channels and other open places.

Nigerian popular writer Chimamanda Adichie has shared her regret about not becoming a citizen in the United States when she was given the opportunity but rather chose to be a citizen of Nigeria.

In an interview with the media personality and host of Big Brother Naija, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Bounce radio, she revealed her regrets for not accepting to be an American citizen. According to her, everything about Nigeria frustrates her.

Chimamanda also disclosed that she has stopped attending catholic churches in Nigeria. She stated that she stopped because some activities become way too much about money, fundraising, and thanksgiving.

In her words…..

“She’s Nigerian but Nigeria deeply frustrates her. She came to the immediate realization that she doesn’t have to be a dutiful daughter or citizen despite wanting to share in the average experience of an average Nigerian. She made the choice of not being a US citizen which she deeply regrets.”
