Adichie made the revelation in an interview with media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Bounce Radio.
She stated that:
“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 author also spoke on why she has stopped attending the Catholic Church in Nigeria.
The 43-year-old writer revealed that the activities of the Church became “way too much” about money, fundraising, and thanksgiving.
