Saint Kitts and Nevis, the two Caribbean islands that form the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis have an “economic citizenship program” that makes their passports available for anyone with $350,000 to spare.
Several Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) major players have snapped up this opportunity, in preparation for fleeing Nigeria if President Buhahari decides to prosecute them for looting the public purse.
They include the ex governor of Akwa Ibom State Godswill Akpabio, who are now citizens of Saint Kitts and Nevis and have bought properties in the sun-kissed islands.
Akpabio described his time as a governor as an “uncommon transformation” of his state, while PDP propaganda claimed there was a “Transformation Agenda” when they were in power. It now looks like we are seeing an agenda of uncommon transformation from Nigerian citizenship to Saint Kitts and Nevis nationality.
