August 11, 2022

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has dismissed reports of shortage of passport booklets across the nation.

Aregbesola made the disclosure on Wednesday during the roll out of “enhanced e-passport” and commissioning of the passport production center in Port Harcourt which covers AkwaIbom, Bayelsa, Cross Rivers and Rivers States.

The Minister described those peddling news of passport shortage as “unpatriotic and unscrupulous Nigerians”, insisting that the “enhanced e-passport is a product of the latest technology” which cannot be seen in most advanced countries.

He added that the ministry is leaving “no stone unturned” in the quest in making passports available for Nigerians who desire it. He also warns passport applicants against patronizing “scammers”.

He equally said the immigration service will not “collect cash from any applicant” as all payment will be made online.
