FG says passport backlogs should be cleared in 2 weeks

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.

This was made known by Tunji-Ojo while featuring on a Channels Television programme, Politics Today, on Tuesday night, September 5, 2023.

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.
