Passport backlog clearance: Nigerians salute Tinubu’s minister, Tunji-Ojo
Published By: Kazeem Ugbodaga
Dr Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo has been hailed for overseeing the clearance of passport backlog in the Ministry of Interior, with multiple reports citing a total of 204, 322 outstanding passports delivered to citizens.
This action by Tunji-Ojo has earned him the sobriquet ‘minister talk and do’ for getting the job done.
His consistent passion for the alleviation of the pains of Nigerians has made a number of them applaud President Bola Tinubu for appointing Hon. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo to the ministry as he makes everyone believe that the Renewed Hope agenda of the president can be realized.
Prominent Instagram blogs, Goldmyn and Instablog, posted the recent development, and their comments section is full of praise and happiness.
Mona_Liza_Perry came out batting with “I’ve heard some people say they haven’t been called by the passport office, please go to the NIS office and collect your passport, it’s not everybody that will receive a message for collection from them. Your passports are ready”.
Macjay147 contributed “Nigeria can work like other countries, if we jettison nepotism with capacity, put qualified people in positions of power and we will see every sector working smoothly. See how this minister has delivered within a short period what previous ministers failed to deliver”.
Similarly, @emlexprince noted, “If this minister can perform such actions, we are expecting other ministers to do likewise in their capacities. It is time to make Nigeria work, now not tomorrow. Our future begins now, not tomorrow.
Echoing the same sentiments, @folaelizabeth gave a testimony, “Thank you o, my sister did her passport and it’s just one week or so, I was surprised. God bless you, sir.”
In like fashion, @allforgodventure, recounted “I collected mine last week Friday, with no additional fees.”

Sounding a note of caution, @Nightmarshal1 said “Some of you should understand that you were scammed when you did your passport, so you most likely will not collect anything. The passport backlog has been cleared to zero!
@Bamitale29 declared, “To those who did their capturing in Sagamu, kindly go and collect your passport, I was there last week Friday, and a whole lot of passports have not been collected, like hundreds.
@Kingj_kingj was optimistic about applying for a passport. “Thank God for this intervention. I will go to Alimosho tomorrow and demand for my passport.”
@a_de_to_la chimed in, “I applaud the Interior Minister for this, now, I can tell my brother to go and collect his passport.”
@Nabilezhar and @ObaKsolo opined “Wow, see efficiency and transparency “this is good news.”
While @Kikejohnson1 noted that the Minister was born for this, “I’m not surprised Olubunmi, you were born for this.”
