How I Addressed the Issue of Visa Processing Officer Caught Watching Bbnaija During Work Hours – Minister

Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, the Minister of Interior, shared an intriguing account of how he addressed a significant breach of duty by a visa processing officer caught indulging in the entertainment of Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) during work hours at the airport. This incident, recounted by Tunji-Ojo in a video whose exact date is unspecified but has since garnered attention across X (formerly Twitter), shed light on the Minister’s proactive approach to overseeing operational changes within the immigration framework.

In recounting the incident, Tunji-Ojo highlighted a pivotal moment during his return from Italy when airport officials eagerly offered assistance with his luggage, an offer he politely declined. Subsequently, he took an unannounced visit to the Visa on Arrival section, seeking firsthand insight into their operational efficiency.

Upon arriving at the Visa on Arrival section, TunjiOjo was astounded to find numerous individuals queued up, eagerly awaiting visa processing services that were not being attended to. This stark reality prompted him to personally investigate the situation, approaching an official to ascertain the cause of the delay.

To his dismay, he discovered that the very official responsible for processing visas was engrossed in watching Big Brother Naija, blatantly misusing the designated system meant for visa issuance. In response to this egregious breach of duty, Tunji-Ojo swiftly took action, promptly reassigning the erring official to another department, ensuring that such a lack of professionalism and negligence would not hinder the efficient delivery of immigration services.

Tunji-Ojo’s account not only underscores his commitment to ensuring a marked improvement in the operational conduct of airport officials but also highlights his determination to uphold standards of professionalism and efficiency in the immigration system. His decisive action in rectifying this lapse serves as a testament to his dedication to effecting positive changes within the realm of immigration procedures, emphasizing the importance of diligence and commitment to duty among all personnel involved.
