Immigration clears 60,000 passport backlogs in four days – FG

Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo has said that the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has cleared a passport backlog of almost 60,000 within four working days.

Ojo disclosed this on Tuesday, September 12, when he received the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation Betta Edu on a courtesy call. 

He said;

“When we came on board, the passport crisis was an embarrassment. And we said, It cannot continue. 

 “As of this morning, I can tell you that about 60,000 passport backlogs have been cleared, especially 59,906. On Wednesday, September 6, 2023, when I gave the 2-week ultimatum, we had over 200,000 backlogs. We have recorded progress, and I maintain my word that those backlogs must be cleared.”
