Nigerians in Chicago, Minnesota, Indianapolis requesting passports since 2018 yet to get

A report by the Nigerian consulate general in New York has revealed that there are outstanding passport requests dating back to 2018 that have yet to be responded to.

Consulate general Lot Egopija disclosed this in a report of the activities of the consulate in 2021.

The consulate stated that it embarked on passport intervention exercise in Chicago from August 26 to 28, 2021, noting that there are outstanding passports between 2018 and 2019 in Chicago, Minnesota and Indianapolis.

“Also, there are outstanding requests for passports from Nigerian community in Philadelphia, Minnestota, Ohio, Michigan, Massachusetts and Rhode Island,” it said.

Nigeria’s consulate general in New York, however, said it produced 14,758 passports in 2021 amid the perennial shortage of booklets that hampered smooth operations of the passport section.
