Residents Rejoice as NIS Sites Passport Issuing Office in Oyo Town

The residents of Oyo town have expressed excitement following how the Nigeria Immigration Service sited an international passport office in the ancient community as preparations are now in top gear for its inauguration.

A visit by newsmen to the facility located at Government Reservation Area, GRA, showed that some personnel of the Nigeria Immigration Service are already on ground in connection with its smooth take off.

Although none of the NIS officers volunteered information about the passport office, President of Oyo Metropolitan Development Association, Archbishop Ayo Ladigbolu hinted that residents would no longer travel elsewhere to obtain their international passport.

According to Archbishop Ladigbolu, who doubles as the Chairman of the Passport Office Commissioning Committee, the community was ready for the inauguration once the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola picks a date.

Archbishop Ladigbolu stressed that though the project was one of the legacies of late Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, the community sees the passport office as a welcome federal presence.
