Change Nigerian Passport validity period to ten years instead of 5 years

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Obtaining or renewing the Nigerian International Passport is a very tedious process. Many Nigerians living abroad do not have the Nigerian Embassy or Consulate nearby. Getting or renewing the passport requires physical appearance, adults and children at Nigerian Embassies or Consulates.  Families incure thousands of dollars to transport families via airplane and hotel accomodation to go through the process. American Passport for adults, for example is valid for 10 years even though the process of obtaining American passport is quite straightforward and not cumbersome. Renewing Nigerian passport every 5 years is too burdensome to citizens as well as to the government agency issuing the passport. This change is clearly needed. Nigerians please support this petition and circulate widely amongst Nigerians.
