Unavailability Of Passports, Biafrans Suffers It Most But Standard Passport Booklets Now Available – CG, Nigeria Immigration Service


There is this news making round the web that Biafrans will have to go to the North or West to obtain a passport, just the same way they will have to travel almost 1,000 kilometers to have access to International Airports.

With this news by the Comptroller General, there might be some atom of truth in the unavailability of passport news, all the same let's assume that passports are available for Biafrans to obtain, now that they need it, because soon they might have no need for it anymore.

The Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, Muhammad Babandede, has said that the Service now has standard passport booklets in sufficient quantity for issuance, and has therefore directed Passport Control Officers to clear the backlog of all outstanding applications.

A statement by NIS Public Relations Officer, Sunday James, says the CG has appealed to the general public to bear with the Service and has also called on applicants who applied and paid for the 64-Page Stan­dard Passport Booklet to contact the Centres where they made the applications for process­ing of their applications, adding that the 32 page backlogs will be cleared next week.

“All passport appli­cants who applied and paid for the 64-Page Standard Passport Book­let are advised to contact the Centres where they made the applications for processing of their applications, 32 page backlogs will be cleared next week”, the statement stated.

In the same vein the Minister of Interior, Lt Gen Abdulrahman Dambazau (rtd) has di­rected the immediate do­mestication of the pro­duction of the passport booklets in the country.

The CG appeals to all those who have had difficulty in getting their passport applications to kindly bear with the Service as, according to him, efforts have been concluded to attend to all other pending applications in all Processing Centers.
