ABUJA (MandyNews.com) – The Immigration Office in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, is reportedly overwhelmed with thousands of citizens seeking to obtain international passports as a result of the widespread disappointment following the recently concluded 2023 general elections.
Many Nigerians had hoped for a change in the political landscape of the country, however, the alleged rigging and electoral malpractices have left them disillusioned and without hope for a better future in their homeland.
According to eyewitnesses, the crowds at the Immigration Office are so large that the office is struggling to keep up with the demand, and the waiting time for passport applications has stretched into several days.
The situation is so dire that some Nigerians are reportedly standing outside the Immigration Office, braving the scorching sun and the occasional rains, all in a bid to secure a chance to leave the country.
The scenes at the Immigration Office paint a picture of a country in crisis, with many of its citizens seeking to escape political turmoil and economic hardship.
It remains to be seen how the Nigerian government will respond to this growing crisis, as thousands continue to flock to the Immigration Office seeking to obtain passports and leave the country in search of greener pastures.
The Nigerian Immigration Service has yet to issue a statement on the matter, but with the situation rapidly deteriorating, it is expected that they will soon address the pressing concerns of the citizens seeking to leave the country.
