YOU DON’T NEED TO COME TO ABUJA FOR CHANGE OF NAME ON YOUR PASSPORT DUE TO MARRIAGE…. NIS

The Comptroller of Immigration, FCT Tony Akuneme has affirmed that only Nigerians wanting to make multiple changes on their e- passport need to come to Abuja.

Akuneme who also doubles as the Special Assistant on media to the Comptroller General said
the kind of requests made by Nigerians at home and abroad is unimaginable.

“Lost passports are reissued at all the 36 state passport offices.

Ditto for change of name due to marriage. The only people that are required to come to Abuja are those changing sensitive values like Date or Place of birth as well as your whole names. This is not something that should happen all the time and it was also centralized because of the abuse in our system.

Only in Nigeria you see a man or woman wanting to transmute from three Igbo names to three yoruba names, with 15 to 20 years difference in date of birth. So we do everything to discourage them but yet they don’t even mind the Abuja trip we complain about.

We just got to work on our culture which indeed is our future”
