In a bid to offer more opportunities and promote diversity, the Nigerian Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved the citizenship of 385 applicants. Rauf Aregbesola, the Minister of Interior, announced the approval of the Nigerian citizenship to the qualified applicants during a briefing with State House correspondents.

Of the 385 applicants, 317 were granted Nigerian citizenship by naturalization, while 68 applicants were granted Nigerian citizenship by registration. Aregbesola noted that the citizenships were granted to the applicants based on constitutional and administrative requirements.

Meanwhile, the council also approved the National Fire Detection and Alarm System project with a life safety system, monitoring, networking, and dispersion in real-time. The project, which will be on a Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement, will be beneficial to subscribers, particularly Nigerians. The minister noted that subscribers could subscribe to an automatic fire alarm system that raises an alarm at the nearest fire service station in the country.

The cloud-based system is designed with modern technology to facilitate prompt responses to emergency cases relating to fire outbreaks. According to the minister, the project is not at any cost to the government. However, the subscription fee is yet to be determined.

The FEC is focused on improving the lives of Nigerians and promoting diversity across the country. As such, the council has approved the citizenship of the qualified applicants, making them part of the growing population of Nigeria.

In conclusion, the citizenship approval is a testament to the government’s commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive society that offers equal opportunities to all
