Word on the Street: Donald Trump doesn’t want your babies to be American citizens, Blac Chyna is coming to Nigeria and more
Hello there, welcome to Word on the Street. Pardon today’s short roundup. Tuesday was a slow one. Read on.
Donald Trump wants to prevent your children from being American citizens
You know how it’s a thing for Nigerians (people from many parts of the world really) to travel to America to have their babies in order to make them automatically American citizens, perks and all?
Well, American President Donald Trump wants to put an end to it. Yesterday, he revealed his plans to remove the right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorised immigrants born in the United States.
Donald Trump said he’d not need Congress to make this happen, he’d simply make it an executive order. Baba is not joking around. He has finally gotten a more feasible idea to keep immigrants out of the US, as he has always wanted.
If you have plans to make your children American citizens like me, do quick before Trump ruins everything for us.
Blac Chyna is coming to Nigeria
The American model and entrepreneur whose real name is Angela Renée White announced her first visit to the motherland on Instagram.
On November 24, she’ll host a pool party organised by Play Network Africa. Attendance is by invites only, so you’d have to contact the company if you want to attend.
Nigerian Army University, Borno state
Yesterday, the federal government commissioned the Nigerian Army University located in Biu, Borno state. The establishment of the university was reportedly approved by the Federal Executive Council in April.
The university will admit students from 2018/2019 session in five faculties and 39 programmes, in collaboration with the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
The ultimate goal, according to Prof. David Malgwi, the school’s acting Vice Chancellor, is to operate with 14 faculties, 113 departments and 493 programmes.
