Int’l passports: S’East Online publishers commend Anambra Immigration’s quality services


South East Online Publishers have lauded the quick processing and issuance of International Passports by the Anambra Command of the Immigrations Service.

National President of the Association Prince Petrus Obi who spoke to newsmen in Enugu expressed satisfaction with the orderliness and timeliness with which passports are processed and issued in Anambra.

Obi who is leading an ongoing finding on the rigors of obtaining an International passport in the region commended the outstanding arrangement at the Anambra Command.

The team which had private chats with some of the applicants seeking International passports specifically commended the Comptroller Ms. Ngozi Odikpo and the Passport Control Officer Mr. Jinjoh William for their outstanding efforts.

“It’s unbelievable that passports are issued within six weeks by those applying for the first time and three weeks for those renewing for the second or third time. Yes, we can confirm this is happening in Anambra.

“We found Anambra to have been consistent so long as the network is okay, and materials are on the ground.

“We also discovered that Cameras have been installed in all offices to monitor all the units. There are cameras in the capturing room, corridor, and gate to know people entering and leaving the premises due to the insecurity situation in the state.”

“To ensure orderliness, the Comptroller Mrs. Odikpo reportedly acquired an apparatus that dispenses numbers to applicants; this number cannot be duplicated. Between the hours of 8 am to 6 pm, the doors of the capturing room are open, when it’s your number you go in, sign, and then leave. Without the number, nobody attends to you.

“Abuja has also helped by sending a new fingerprint machine which is working perfectly. With that, the fingerprint problem at the Command has been curtailed and everything is going on successfully.

“The headquarters also sent a new passport reader to facilitate quick issuance of passports

“An increase in the request for passports has also been identified in the South East and Anambra is successfully handling the situation.

“In all, the Minister of Interior Ogbeni Rauf Arigbesola and Comptroller General of Immigration, Isa Jere appear to have a clear cut vision and what they are pushing for is achievable as seen in Anambra.”
