Why do we make things so difficult for our people in Nigeria?
Why on earth should the Immigration authorities require people who have lost their International Passports to go to Abuja to obtain a replacement?
It simply doesn't make any sense.
Why should a man who live in Lagos have to go to Abuja because his passport is missing when there is an Immigration office in Lagos issuing passports?
Are we not thinking or we simply don't care?
In the USA, a Nigerian having the same problem can go to any of our Consulates in New York, Washington or any other to have the passport re-issued.
They don't have to come back to Abuja.
Why is it not possible to enable or authorize the regional or state offices to re-issue without going to Abuja?
In some parts of the world, you don't even have to go to any office. You apply online and the passport is mailed to you.
We need to place the comfort and convenience of our citizens at the centre of policies.

We can't remain on the same spot while the rest of the world is moving on.
