The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has reportedly commenced acceptance of applications for new passports, Newspremises has learnt. Oyo state command’s comptroller, Safiya Mohammed disclosed this during a send-off for Usman Babangida, the outgoing comptroller on Tuesday June 8. Mohammed said that the new applications which started at 12 midnight on Tuesday are in line with the directive of the NIS’ Comptroller-General, Muhammad Babandede. She said; “The agency had suspended new applications for passports to clear the backlog of passport applications that were received. “One of the priorities of the CG is the processing and prompt delivery of passports to applicants. He told me to see that the backlog is cleared. “Also, the command over the weekend worked overnight, and we were able to produce over 3,000 passports out of the backlog. “This is to give room for new applicants to be attended to. New applications started at 12 midnight on Tuesday."
