AS part of efforts to ease the difficulties experienced in the issuance of passports, the Federal Government of Nigeria has promised to establish a centre in the Alimosho LGA and other areas in Nigeria. 

Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, stated this on Tuesday, November 22, 2022, at the fourth edition of the PMB Administration Scorecard 2015-2023 series, organised by the Ministry of Information and Culture.

Mr Aregbesola assured that the challenges being encountered in the issuance of passports were being addressed.

“We don’t have enough processing and data capturing centres across the country. This is the major challenge.

“For example, we have only three centres in the whole of Lagos, but I can assure you that before this administration leaves by May 29, next year, Lagos will have 20 processing centres.

“We will open a processing centre in Daura, Oyo, Zaria, Alimosho, Defence Headquarters, Head of Service office, and one in the Ministry of Interior,” the Minister said.

Originally from Osun State, Aregbesola began his political career in Alimosho, where he once aspired to the House of Representatives, and held sway in Alimosho politics for a long time.
