Commissioning of Igbogbo Passport Office: A Delivery of Cooperation

This is to specially congratulate all residents and indigenes of Igbogbo kingdom on the opening of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) Passport Office in Igbogbo. I also congratulate the leadership, management and staff of the NIS for this additional office. The location of this office is indeed strategic as it will help serve applicants in many parts of the Lagos Mainland. The office will also potentially serve applicants from Ogun State communities that are close to Ikorodu Division.

For Igbogbo, this is an important recognition of our great kingdom. The socioeconomic benefits of this office cannot be overemphasized.

The Igbogbo NIS Passport Office is a perfect example of what cooperation can deliver. It is therefore important that we imbibe more understanding amongst ourselves so that the development of our kingdom can be accelerated.

Some persons deserve special appreciation in making the NIS Passport Office, Igbogbo comes to fruition.

  1. Hon. Olubumi Ojo (Honourable Minister of Interior) and Mrs Carol Wúrà-Ola Adepoju (NIS Comptroller General) for ensuring that the office is not abandoned. It is inspiring to see that the honourable minister made a case for change to NIS passport issuance processes and backed up his words with actions.
  2. Hon. ‘Jimi Benson. I thank you so much our dear super honourable. We know how you regularly engaged the Minister and the NIS CG on the need for the office to be opened for business. The entire Igbogbo kingdom will never forget you. Yours is an example of unstinting usage of political capital to make far-reaching impacts on the generality of the people.
  3. HRM Adeboruwa of Igbogbo and Adeboruwa in Council. Your untiring actions, engagements, and entreaties to all necessary offices and persons were instrumental to the success of the Igbogbo NIS Passport Office. With your continued actions, the development we crave for is sure.
  4. Adeyanlu Family I specially salute the benevolence of the Adeyanlu family who gave up their lands for the project. Your eternal gesture is a demonstration of selflessness. Many thanks for demonstrating top-level magnanimity that other families can emulate. I pray that God bless all members of your family.
  5. IBLCDA: Present and Former Executive and Legislative Teams. The success of this project has the imprints of many former executive and legislative officers of the IBLCDA so, I appreciate them all. I also appreciate the present leadership and members of the IBLCDA executive and legislature for being steadfast in their support for the passport office.
  6. IDEA, IYC and Other Community Groups. The contributions of the Igbogbo Development Association, Igbogbo Youth Coalition and other community groups of Igbogbo kingdom are invaluable to the opening of the passport office. I salute your cooperation and utmost understanding.
  7. Community Leaders. The role our revered leaders played in the opening of the passport office was inestimable. I therefore commend them, unreservedly. In particular, I greatly appreciate Asiwaju Olorunfunmi Basorun, Dr Ogunlaja, Engr Lateef Ọdúntán, and many others. A máa rí yín bá o… Àmín.
  8. All Contributors and Donors (including anonymised donors). Some fantastic individuals worked for the actualization of the passport office and are thanked profusely. Great thanks to Mr Samson Ogunjimi for his push on the project. The completion of the passport office also benefited from the generosity of many donors too numerous to mention. I commend you all, may God replenish your pockets.

I encourage us to see the achievement of the passport office as a reward of our cooperation. We will achieve so much more for our community if we continue to work together with zeal and forthrightness.

Long live Igbogbo Kingdom!
Long live Ikorodu Division!
Long live Lagos State!
