Ex BBNaija housemate, Uriel Ngozi Oputa, has everything to rejoice as she becomes a British citizen on Wednesday, December 18.
In an Instagram post she shared on Wednesday, she said that because of a clause in the law she could not become the citizen of the country even though she was born there.
She said that though the citizenship process was very tough, she was able to weather it through and pass the exams.
“Although I was born here I was never entitled because my mother is Nigerian, one yeye law they passed bk then,” she said.
The 2017 BBNaija star said she was very grateful her mum never abandoned them back in Nigeria when their dad died but rather chose to fight through life in a foreign country.
