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 used apart from traveling.

Like how much?

Use your sense. The GROWTH in number means more people leaving because all those other uses were equally there last year.

Use your sense. The growth in number is due to the reduced friction. The high cost of acquiring passports was a friction.

Not necessarily. It's a means of identification.

In my candid view, if people want to have an identity document without travel intent, they have the National Identify card. It is relatively easier to get and does not cost much more than the international passport.
While it is good that we all should get our passports, there is a likely, and a subtle indication of discontent with issues in Nigeria, and it appears there is a correlation between those securing passport and those wanting to leave Nigeria. I do not think passport is cheaper now anyway,(maybe officially). You try and process one without any help from any one oga at the top and you would see the real price of passport.
I also would suggest to you that you can make your point without being insultive. I can understand the challenge of coping with the problems of Nigeria and also that of defending the government. I don't envy your job.

I swear. Our DIFFERENCES is their antidote. That's why it's difficult for a revolution to happen. If you gather youth for a revolution a politician will simply point out the tribe of the leader of the group and make it a tribal thing. Emeka will not trust Tobi and musa will not trust any southerner. It's sick.

Friction? My friend more and more people want to leave the country. Anywhere u look, circumstancial evidence will tell u that. The truth is, rghtly or wrongly, Nigerans have been thoroughly sold that 9ja is s shithole, that it is better"abroad".

Are they even supposed to release the report? Nigerians are just fed up of the country, if you blame it on past leaders, some people here will come for your head, if you blame it on the current ruler, some people are ready to feast on you.

It's hard in the country.
