FG plans to implement biometric gates at international airports in March

Date:

The Nigerian Federal Government has finalized arrangements to implement biometric clearance gates for the Nigeria Immigration Service across the country’s international airports.

These gates are set to be operational at major airports, including Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Port Harcourt International Airport, and Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu by March 2024.

 

The Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, expressed optimism during an inspection visit, emphasizing that the installation of 17 gates in Lagos, 10 in Abuja, five each in Port Harcourt and Kano, and four in Enugu will significantly enhance the efficiency of international passenger clearance.

This strategic move aims to streamline processes, reduce delays, and contribute to national security, aligning with global best practices and President Bola Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda.
