The Ogun State Government has reiterated its commitment to create a society of equity and peace that would make life more prosperous to the people, irrespective of gender, religion, political affiliation or geographical location.
The Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, represented by his Deputy, Engr. Mrs. Noimot Salako-Oyedele, stated this at the official commissioning of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) Front Office, in Sagamu.
He noted that the establishment of the Passport Office in Sagamu and the existing one in Abeokuta would go a long way to ease the stress of obtaining passports, adding that, apart from Lagos, Ogun is the only State in the South West, that has more than one passport office.
“We appreciate the support and the cooperation of the people to the successful implementation of Government policies and programmes; we will continue to rekindle their hope by implementing people-friendly policies and programmes’’, he said.
Earlier in the welcome address, the Assistant Comptroller General, NIS, Mohammed Sanni Harande, commended the people of Remoland for their support and cooperation, noting that the construction of the Passport Office started during the 2017 Comptroller General Annual Conference, held in Abeokuta, adding that it would ease pressure on the Abeokuta Office.
In his remarks, the Akarigbo and Paramount ruler of Remoland, Oba Adewale Babatunde Ajayi, said the establishment of the office would further position Ogun State as the investment destination of choice.
Oba Ajayi hinted that the commissioning of the passport office was one of the programmes lined up for Remo Growth and Development Foundation, saying in few weeks, the Alternative Dispute Resolution would also be commissioned.
