Nigeria Immigration Service Has Never Had Shortage Of Passport Booklets-Aregbesola




Nigeria’s Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola has stated that the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), has never at any given time, experienced shortage of passport booklets.

Aregbesola, made the claim in Oyo Town on Tuesday, April 2, while inaugurating the NIS passport front office.

He added that a few corrupt officials are undermining efforts of the NIS at sanitising the passport application process.

“One of the challenges facing NIS as regards passports application are the few corrupt officials of the service who are undermining the efforts of the service at sanitising the process and bringing integrity to passports application.

“These unscrupulous people are making the situation difficult by the day. If people did not tolerate them, they will not exist again.

“They are the ones spreading the rumour that there is no booklet in order to continue to extort the applicants.

“We did not have shortage of booklets at any given time; we have enough booklets to meet the need of the people. There are more than enough booklets in our production schedule,” he concluded.

Aregbesola who appealed to Nigerians to stop patronising the “louts” and report any NIS official extorting applicants for money, further disclosed that the NIS has improved its services, adding that only a few countries could boast of the type of passport Nigeria has, which he said “is one of the best in the world”.
