A Nigerian man who renounced his nationality to become a U.S citizen in order to join the US Navy, has recounted how Nigeria failed him in his trying times.
Aregbesola went on Twitter on Saturday, October 10, to tell how he renounced his country of birth to join the United States Navy.
The officer and father of one recalled how he was jobless for many years in Nigeria but the U.S. Navy saw his potential and made him a sailor.
“I was jobless for so many years, my country of birth (Nigeria, now renounced) failed me, but the U.S. Navy saw potentials in me and made me a fine ass sailor, working on Jet engines,” he wrote.
A Nigerian Twitter user criticised him for renouncing his country of birth, Aregbesola, however, replied that it was part of the requirements for the type of job he does for the U.S Navy.
