Every Nigerian has the right to a Nigerian passport and it is our responsibility to put it in the hands of anyone desirous of it within the shortest possible time, without stress. The passport should be available within a maximum of 72 hours of a successful application.

It will also afford Nigerians the opportunity of getting their passports within 24hrs, at the high premium service, and 72hrs at the ordinary premium service, albeit with added value and a little bit of extra cost.

A centre like this is necessary to reduce stress. Secondly, by minimising human contact, it eliminates the prospect of corruption.

The Minister added that the launch of the operation will offer Nigerians services of convenience and pleasure by taking away the hitherto stress in the conventional passport offices.
