The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Nigeria wishes to inform all prospective applicants who desire to renounce their Nigerian citizenship that the power to approve renunciation of Nigerian citizenship or restoration of same is the sole prerogative of Mr. President, as enshrined in Chapter III, Article 29, sub. Section 1-2, of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (1999).
 
  1. Kindly note, therefore, that such powers are NOT TRANSFERABLE and that the process can only be carried out in Nigeria.
