Ikeja passport office kicks off weekend operations

Passport Office

Rose Bukar, a passport control officer of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), says the passport office in Ikeja, Lagos has commenced operations on Saturdays and Sundays.

Bukar, in an interview with NAN, today, said the decision was taken to enable the passport office to ramp up service delivery to applicants.

She said the NIS aims to spend less time processing fresh passport applications, adding that initiatives that would ensure smooth and fast service to Nigerians will be introduced, Touchaheart blog reports.

“We want to ensure that applicants spend lesser time in processing passports. We shall also continue to initiate measures that will enhance smooth and fast service to Nigerians,” she said.

“This weekend, we witnessed an unexpected turn-up of applicants, but we paid special attention to the vulnerable one.

“The Nigerian Immigration Service has introduced some special compassionate measures for the vulnerable, especially those with health challenges, the elderly, the heavily pregnant, and those living with disabilities.

“In the last seven days, about 800 passports were produced. I am optimistic that with more capturing devices, the queue will gradually diminish.”
