On Monday, January 04, 2021 at around 09:000 am, there were unusual number of passport applicants queued at the
Nigeria embassy in Berlin, Germany in honour of the appointment they booked online.
In a viral video online, the over 500 people came to make their new/renew their passport. The number is unusual because according to report, the normal number of persons for passport appointment don’t exceed 30 to 40 in number.
Investigation by LiveTimesNG reveals that the development can be traced to incompetence and negligence on the part of the embassy management under the supervision of the serving ambassador in the embassy, Mr. Yusuf Tuggar.
Our finding revealed that the recent anomaly can be traced to the personnel handling passport appointment system and possible cause may be the selling of appointment to the highest bidders.
It was also gathered that there were many professional German companies who can handle the appointment system for the embassy but it has been given to a incompetent organization which allows perpetrations of frauds.
Recall the case allegation of sex for passport against a member of staff in the embassy, Mr. Martins which went viral late last year, there were some critical questions asked but up till date, the embassy management under the leadership of Mr. Yusuf Tuggar were yet to provide Nigerians with answers.
The question is, could the anomalies in the embassy in anyway connected to the reason the head of the security department was reportedly setup by tout operating in collaboration with some member of staff in Nigeria embassy in Berlin? Nigerians in some quarters in a recent report demanding a comprehensive explanation from the serving ambassador.
