The minister disclosed that the ministry has initiated the training process, paving the way for the official launch of the automation.

Furthermore, Tunji-Ojo highlighted that the automation initiative aims to enhance the country’s security architecture by enabling the swift detection of fraudulent passport applications and streamlining the overall application process.
