In a statement dated August 17, the Ministry raised concerns about these incidents, explaining that the hotlines will curb the menace.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration has observed with grave concerns some complaints by applicants about extortions and mistreatment meted out to them at some Passport Application Centers (PACs). In an effort to deal with the menace, the Ministry is urging applicants who suffer any mistreatment or corruption to report such incidents”.

The Ministry further entreated applicants not to engage staff who are not identified with name tags.

The Ministry reiterated that all officers who have spent more than a year will be changed.
