The minister who assumed office about six months ago had introduced several reforms in the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS).

The new application system intends to give applicants a convenient and secure experience while also reducing the human interface and corruption in the passport application process.

According to him, the new system will strengthen the country’s security architecture and safeguard Nigerian residents’ comfort and convenience.

He said the Nigeria Immigration Service had deployed document verification personnel across all local government areas in the country to improve document verification.

Tunji-Ojo further stated that the government is committed to putting a stop to the use of forged documents in passport applications.
