Pictures On The New Passport Represents All Ethnic Groups – NIS Clarifies
the service said such claims by Nigerians, to an extent, are not true and that every page of the passport has pictures representing various ethnic groups in the country.
Just as some Nigerians reacts to the inscription of Fulani Herdsmen image on background cover of new Nigeria Passport, the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has defended the claim that herdsmen’s pictures are on the new international passport.
In a gathered report, the service said such claims by Nigerians, to an extent, are not true and that every page of the passport has pictures representing various ethnic groups in the country.
The Service further clarified that many countries make use of such medium to display their vital public documents as an opportunity,
mainly, for cultural essence.
The immigration service further advised Nigerians to verify their claim by checking the pages of the new passport they were issued.
Recall, Scannews 24 earlier reported that Apostle Johnson Suleiman, the General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries, pointed out in series of tweets that the newly inscripted images on New Nigeria passport had Fulani herdsmen on it.
The fiery pastor made the statement on Thursday while condemning the Ruga programme by the federal government.
Part of tweets reads: That’s the new nigeria passport..it now has herdsmen inscribed in it…it’s shameful that a certain extraction now represents a nation with 6 geopolitical zones..everything is now very clear..God will frustrate every evil agenda in nigeria.job 5v12,eccl 8v11. pic.twitter.com/HT3uLIDZSo

He said it was shameful how a certain extraction of Nigerians could now represent the 6 geopolitical zones in the country, saying everything is now clear that there is a ‘fulanization’ agenda being aimed at Nigeria.
Apostle Suleiman said he gets “irritated when people say our speaking against fulanization is political.”
Suleman further stressed that this does not remove the love he have for the Fulanis especially because “there are good ones with a great heart. very nice and loving fulani men/women”.
