President Muhammadu Buhari alongside the Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo have been presented with the 10-year diplomatic passport by the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS).
The passport was presented by the Minister of Interior and the Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Service, Abdulrahman Dambazau and Mohammed Babandede respectively.
Officials of NIS in the past captured the biometrics of the President and the Vice-President shortly before the commencement of an extraordinary meeting of the Federal Executive Council inside the council chamber of the presidential villa.
Apart from the 10-year validity, the new passport, according to the NIS has enhanced security and is ”weather friendly”.
The Immigration Service said the new passport has polycarbonate technology that eliminates damage and that it now saves Nigerians in diaspora the time needed to frequently visit Nigerian embassies for new passports.
Last October, Mr Babandede announced that Nigeria will begin using the new passport by December 2018.
The Comptroller General of NIS while speaking to Channels Television said “ten years after the enrollment of the e-passport system, we need to improve the security features”.
