FTC no be here. God too much.

Why will people not fight to get the useless passport, it's the only thing valid to even identify a Nigerian, everyone wants to leave, if the leader himself can't stay in the country , what of the masses.

Special dedication to my lovely boy, God bless you

Passports are now cheaper thanks to the federal government. Now everyone can claim their copy.

Contrary to what many mumu are saying, not everyone that gets a passport intends to travel. Passport has many other uses apart from traveling.

Not all that applied for the passport want to japa. Some even use it as means of ID while others use it while on official assignments abroad. Be educated!

The number of people that want to escape this hell hole is huge. That's an indictment on Buhari's misrule and incompetence.
Triple of that number have their passports already, double of that number have applied this year

The lifeless dullard has ruined this country
