“We are starting the training, and on January 8, the solution will be live and direct for Nigerians to have a good feel and a sweet experience based on the renewed hope of Mr. President.

“We have been able to reduce human contact in passport acquisition to the minimum,” the minister said, adding that the new initiative will enhance the security architecture of the country as well as the comfort and convenience of Nigerians.

Tunji-Ojo said the government wants to put an end to the era of people bringing fake documents for passport applications, even as he announced that the service now has document verification officers across all local government areas in the country to scrutinize passport applications in the country.
