Nigerian National Anthem

  1. Arise, O compatriots, Nigeria's call obey
    To serve our fatherland
    With love and strength and faith
    The labour of our heroes past
    Shall never be in vain
    To serve with heart and might
    One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.
  2. Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause
    Guide our leader’s right
    Help our youth the truth to know
    In love and honesty to grow
    And living just and true
    Great lofty heights attain
    To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign.

NON-AVAILABILITY OF EXPRESS SERVICE FOR PASSPORT RE-ISSUE AT THE HIGH COMMISSION OF NIGERIA, LONDON


     The attention of the High Commission has been drawn to the exploitation of Nigerians by unscrupulous individuals who offered to facilitate issuance of passports within 24 hours on payment of between Two Hundred and Fifty Pounds (£250.00) and Three Hundred Pounds (£300.00) as official fee for 'Express or Expedite Service'.

2.     For the avoidance of doubt, the High Commission wishes to restate that there is neither Express Service nor applicable fee for such non-existence service. However, the High Commission will continue to issue passports with minimum delay and in cases of genuine urgent need for passports to be obtained within 24 hours, it will be issued at no extra charge after approval by the Head of Immigration.

3.      Consequently, Nigerians applying for passports are urged not to pay any extra fees under the guise of EXPRESS SERVICE or any other services aside from the passport fees already paid on-line.
