Clear passport backlog in next two weeks, Minister orders ‘service providers’


The Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, has instructed the contractors working with the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) to ensure that passport application backlogs are cleared “within the next two weeks”. 

Tunji-Ojo, in a Thursday post on X, formerly Twitter, stated that the directive was one of several “swift measures” aimed at eliminating barriers which applicants encounter.

“As part of swift measures to remove all bottlenecks in the acquisition of passport and immigration documents, I engaged service providers to the immigration service to ensure the backlogs of applications are cleared within the next two weeks,” he said.
