Massive delays on renewing passports.

By: Prof. Ndubuisi Ekekwe

Whoever is responsible for the booklets to print Nigerian passports should do his or her job. It turns out that this problem- inability to renew passports – is systemic and widespread across our foreign missions. I just checked my inmails and many others have the same problems: massive delays on renewing passports.

I have followed up and was told that a contract with a supplier is the cause of the problem. I have also received a phone number to call the minister of interior. I will not call – we need to fix this for ALL CITIZENS, not for the few who have access to me.

Last month, I had to call the Nigerian Embassy in
Washington DC via my contacts to avoid a couple in the US being messed up due to delays in renewing passports. Please everyone involved should FIX this.

Calling for another special treatment is not what I want to do now. Let everyone get help. Sign whatever contract and make the booklets available to the embassies. Mr. Minister, do your job!
