“Nigeria Deeply Frustrates Me”, Says Renowned Author, Chimamanda Adichie

Nigerian writer and author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has in a recent chat revealed that Nigeria frustrates her and she regrets not becoming an American citizen when the opportunity presented itself.

She stated this in an interview with media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Bounce Radio where he asked her if she was proud to be a Nigerian. She answered by saying that there was nothing to be proud of. According to her, “She’s Nigerian but Nigeria deeply frustrates her. She came to the immediate realization that she doesn’t have to be a dutiful daughter or citizen despite wanting to share in the average experience of an average Nigerian. She made the choice of not being a US citizen which she deeply regrets.”

“The thing is, a country frustrates you, you’re so disappointed, but your heart somehow is still there, because its yours”, she added.

Chimamanda further revealed that she was waiting for President Trump to leave the presidential office before she can apply to be a US citizen.
