Tunji-Ojo unveils hi-tech e-gates, e-border control to revolutionize Nigeria immigration system

The Minister of Interior, Hon. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, has embarked on a tour of groundbreaking projects aimed at revolutionizing Nigeria’s immigration and border control systems. The focal points of his visit were the E-Gates facility at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, and the e-border data and control center at the Nigeria Immigration Service headquarters.

The e-gates, currently under installation at the nation’s five International Airports, promise to redefine the entry experience for Nigerians. Upon completion, these state-of-the-art gates are expected to minimize human contact, providing citizens with a seamless and efficient passage into the country.

This technological advancement aligns with the government’s commitment to enhancing travel processes and fostering a more connected nation.

Simultaneously, the e-border system, showcased at the Nigeria Immigration Service headquarters, holds the key to fortifying national security. The sophisticated data and control center is poised to bolster the country’s defenses, ensuring a vigilant and responsive approach to border control.

Tunji-Ojo emphasized the critical role this system plays in safeguarding the nation’s integrity and deterring potential security threats.

The ambitious project aligns with the broader vision of the administration, and as the Minister highlighted, it underscores the #RenewedHope promised under the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu (GCFR).


This dual initiative not only embraces cutting-edge technology but also signifies a renewed commitment to the security and efficiency of Nigeria’s borders.

As the nation anticipates the full implementation of these advancements, the prospects of a more secure and seamlessly connected Nigeria become increasingly tangible, leaving citizens hopeful for a future marked by enhanced travel experiences and strengthened national security.
