NIS unveils Kwara passport office

The Nigeria Immigration Office, on Friday, unveiled the passport office in Offa, Kwara State.

In attendance were the Comptroller-General, NIS, Mrs Caroline Adepoju; the Olofa of Offa, Mufutau Gbadamosi; and the Comptroller, Kwara State Command, NIS, Aminu Shamsuddin; amongst others.

PUNCH Online reported that the NIS boss, on December 1, said that barring unforeseen technical issues, Nigerians would get their passports three weeks after the day of submission of the application.

She said it was important for every applicant to register with the same records they had with the National Identity Management Commission as their National Identity Numbers would be linked to their passports.

Adepoju said these at the opening of the Igbogbo Passport Front Office, Ikorodu, Lagos State – her first assignment after her confirmation as the substantive Comptroller-General of the NIS by President Bola Tinubu.
