Introduction

Citizenship denotes the link between a person and a state. There is nothing as fulfilling as knowing that you belong somewhere; that you have a place that you call home. Can you imagine a situation where you have no country to belong to; no state or nation to be associated with! There are people in this world who are in this  category.
Citizenship gives you an automatic right to live, work, and participate in the political activities of your country. To enjoy these rights and benefits, you need to be recognized as a citizen of that country.
