Primary highlights

The Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, has hinted that it shouldn’t take more than 2 weeks to clear all passport backlogs, adding that there is no excuse for passport delay in Nigeria.

Tunji-Ojo insisted that clearing all backlogs shouldn’t take more than 2 weeks, noting that the scarcity and delay around fresh passport issuance and renewal fuelled corruption in the sector.

According to him, it is not excusable for any Nigerian to be treated with disrespect because of passport application.

He said, “After clearing these backlogs, no Nigerian should wait for more than two weeks.’’

The minister said owning the green passport is a right of every Nigerian and not a privilege.
