The Federal Government on Tuesday unveiled the new enhanced e-Passport to improve passport application process for Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora.
This was made known by Rauf Aregbesola the Minister of Interior Affairs, in a statement signed by Mr Sola Fasure, his Media Adviser, in Abuja.
According to the statement, Aregbesola while speaking at the official rollout of the enhanced e-Passport at the Nigerian High Commission in London, UK, noted that it was the responsibility of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to provide passports for its citizens without stress within a reasonable period.
“What we have come to do here is symbolic of the core mandate of the Ministry of Interior Affairs and indeed, the Federal Government’s affirmation of citizenship integrity.
“The Nigerian passport is the highest affirmation of Nigerian citizenship. It is, therefore, our responsibility to provide the passport without any stress, within a reasonable period,” the minister said
