Our discussion centres on Nationality. Citizenship and Corruption. According to Eyo (1997) the word Nationality stems from the Latin verb “nasci” (to be born) and it originally means a group of people (born in the same place. A portion of mankind may be said to constitute a Nationality if they are united among themselves by common sympathies which do not exist between them and any others which make them cooperate with each other people, desire to be under the same government by themselves exclusively. Thus, a Nigerian citizen is an individual who has full political and legal rights in a state. Ayida (1990) emphasized that citizenship can he defined as membership of a given state or a nation. Nigeria is a multi ethnic and multi cultural society with citizens of different ethnic and cultural back grounds. Hence, current evidence in Nigeria shows that there is corruption everywhere. Corruption in Nigeria occurs in different degrees and Forms among individuals and groups fur reasons best known to them. However most individuals and groups encourage corruption as a result of prevailing value system in Nigeria. Some individuals and groups who engage in corruption make use of ethnic and citizenship advantage positions. Thus, there is need for this work on Nationality, Citizenship and Corruption.
