President Buhari Cancels Printing Of Nigerian Passports Abroad


   President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled all contracts for the printing of e-passport abroad. Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president on media and publicity, made this known in a statement released on Thursday saying the printing will now be the sole responsibility of the Nigerian Security Printing & Minting Company (NSPMC). This new directive means all existing contracts concerning printing passports and other documents will not be renewed.

    NSPMC, popularly known as The Mint, was established in 1963 and was saddled with the responsibility of printing the nation’s currency and security documents for ministries, departments and agencies of government, banks and other blue-chip companies.
