|Backlogs of undelivered passports will be totally met before May 31st – Minister by flowbaze: 11:12 am On April 23, 2021|
The federal government has announced the launch of a new passport application system would be aided by fast track services nationwide.
The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, who disclosed this in a press briefing with newsmen on Thursday, April 22, vowed to settle all backlogs of undelivered passport requests before May 31st.
Aregbesola: “On or before May 31st, all backlogs of undelivered requests for passports will be totally met, unless such applications have a problem.
“But before the deadline, the problematic application would be contacted, so that we know what’s wrong with the applications.
“Assuming there would be no problem, every successful application for a passport would be given a passport on or before May 31st.”
The minister disclosed that the FG will launch a new passport application process which would come into effect soon.
According to him, “When you finish your application process, there would be a waiting period of six weeks to collect your passport, however, if you want an express service, there would be fast track centres nationwide, to meet requests for express passport users.”
Meanwhile, Naijtech.com previously reported that the Controller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Muhammed Babandede, spoke on the shortage of passport booklets, which he described as the biggest challenge facing the service.
Babandede disclosed this during the two-day investigative hearing organised by the House of Representatives’ Committee on Foreign Affairs that started on Tuesday.
The CG of the NIS lamented that the NIS had only 47 offices across Nigeria despite the huge population of the country.
Also speaking at the event, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema, charges and levies imposed on Nigerians in diaspora at the foreign missions are due to paucity of funds to run operations.
