  1. IN UK THEY ARE ASKING FOR MONEY BEFORE YOU CAN GET UR PASSPORT IN TIME AND THEY ARE VERY RUDE SET OF PEOPLE.let know who or where to report this set of animal in human kingdom………..

  2. NOT talk talk..what are u going to do about it?we are harrassed in virtually all the nations around the world..even our brother he helped fight apartheid kill at any slight provocation in s. afrca..time to start firing ambassadors that wills end strong warning to all these bullies .

  3. Not just apology but action. In New York the staff are so rude and you are asked to pay additional money before you can even start the passport application process . The office stinks!! You can even smell the dirty bathroom from the office. They even sell food in the office. Nothing about Nigeria works anywhere in the world. One of the staff would be heard shouting at a man that her husband is a doctor so she does not need the job. Please all the staff need proper etiquette training. And I still do not understand why one has to always travel down to get passport renewed, why can’t they just do it like other countries once ones biometric is captured it should make everything easy but then again I am asking for too much from my very corrupt politicians who are very self centered and selfish. And all about stealing and looting!
