I went to renew my passport last week and after capturing, the officer looked at my file & said,

Immigration officer: "which officer is assisting you?"

Me: "no one, I paid online...so when can I get it?"

Him: "you'll collect it online then"

See ehn, fok this country 😭😭😭😭
It was at that moment I knew I'd messed up.

The irony was that this man was playing a gospel song by Frank Edwards from his phone while stylishly requesting a bribe.

So I went to one corner and beckoned to another officer and was like,
"Bros, please excuse me"
We talked for a while and to cut the long story short, I got to understand that if you want to see your passport within 2 months, you need to wet someone's palms.

Our leaders are corrupt but the average Nigerian is no different.

Ole ni everybody in this fokkin country.
So @nigimmigration @NigImmigServ @ServicomOffice , you guys should stop asking for our experiences on twitter. Send agents to your passport offices all over the country and see the widespread corruption going on there.

Your officers are ripping Nigerians off everyday.
Also if you come for renewal, the officer might take your old passport and flip through the pages. Once they see you're a frequent traveler especially to places like the US or Europe, they automatically conclude that you have money so they'll charge you a lot...thieves all of em.
