Mohammed Babandede, Comptroller-General, Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), has said that the issuance of Nigerian Passport with 10 years validity will commence in December, 2018.
Mr Babandede made the disclosure when he visited Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State on Monday in Ibadan.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the immigration boss and some senior officers were in Ibadan for the first International Conference on Border In-Transition at the University of Ibadan.
He explained that the new passport would have features that could stand the test of time, adding that it would run concurrently with the old ones.
According to Obieze, he and his colleagues were rescued by military personnel that mounted roadblocks and helped them out of the bush.
