President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that the production and personalization of all Nigerian e-passports and related documentation shall be the sole responsibility of the Nigerian Security Printing & Minting Company (NSPMC).

The statement signed by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said with the new directive from Buhari, all existing memoranda of understanding and contracts on printing by other institutions/companies will not be renewed.

The Mint is the largest banknote and security documents specialist printing company in West Africa. However, its performance was rapidly dwindling in terms of both currency production and security documents prior to 2014.
