When They Do The UK Proud They are British Citizens, When They Don't They are British Citizens of Nigerian Descent
More than a third of Britain's London 2012 Olympic medal winners were born abroad or had a foreign parent or grandparent, a new study has suggested, as reiterated by an article by Telegraph papers UK.
At least 16 medal-winners have family links to Nigeria, including 400m silver medal-winner Christine Ohoruogu, 28, whose parents moved to Britain in 1980 while 23 year-old boxing bronze medal-winner Anthony Ogogo's father is Nigerian. These UK greats are announced and applauded by the British press as Britons as they have done their country of birth, albeit country of immigration proud.
Its however saddening that whenever a negative imagery is the case on one of these legal immigrants with British Citizenry, their roots are however brought to the light. British citizens are the holiest or aren't criminals? Hahahaha I laugh in spanish!
Britain should worry about the fact that there might be an emerging "home grown" terrorist, albeit immigrants with British citizenry instead of playing the diplomacy cards in addressing the issue.
Everyone is concerned with the growing trend of terrorism and I am particularly saddened by the fact that my country, Nigeria is one of the nations dealing with the issue of terrorism at the moment. I am saddened by the fact that these extremists attack schools every now and then in northern Nigeria with a lot of children perishing for what they know nothing about.
It is dis pleasing and disheartening to know I cannot visit some parts of my country without feeling secure, however what I won't stand for is a country refusing to take responsibility for its own. The "Nigerian-British" suspects responsible for the killing of the British soldier in the UK earlier on this year did a terrible thing and should be punished for their crime but does that indicates to Britain that all Nigerians should be labelled or stereotyped as terrorists? After all both suspects have never lived in Nigeria.
If they are British in good times, they should be British in bad times too. God bless Nigeria! God save the Queen!
