The Acting Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, Isah Idris, has appealed to Nigerians to cooperate with the organization to sanitize the system and improve service delivery, especially in the area of passport administration and issuance.

Mr. Idris, in a statement at the weekend, said a part from reducing incidences of corruption, the introduction of the appointment system has helped to improve productivity, reduce rowdiness and curtail excesses of touts and some personnel of the service.    

According to him the integration of the online appointment system has restored orderliness to the passport offices to a large extent, as applicants can now make payment and choose the appointment date and time which is convenient to them, thereby reducing the time they would have spent at the passport office.

The Acting Comptroller General enjoined passport applicants to plan their travels to avoid what he described as the fire brigade approach by many Nigerians adding that it has become the habit of many Nigerians to wait until the time they need passports before applying.
