The Appeal of the Nigerian Embassy in Berlin
Tackle bribes issue involving Nigerian Embassy staffJuly 18th, 2019
During the annual meeting of the NIDOG (Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation Germany) held in Dortmund, the Minister of the Consular & Immigration Section at the Nigerian Embassy in Berlin, Mohammed Bello Musa Anka, addressed Nigerians living in Germany regarding passport processing bribes issue.
Mr Anka, representing Nigeria’s Ambassador in Berlin at the meeting, showed outrage about bribes issue involving “embassy’s local staff”. In order to raise awareness of the goals achieved so far, he stated: “The ambassador is doing everything to make things right. Only on Monday this week, we did a minimum of 102 passports, on Tuesday 82 passports, on Wednesday 74 passports, with biometrics captured. So, we’re doing our best”.
Mr Anka ended his speech trying to reassure Nigerian Community in Germany, by asserting: “You’re professionals, you’re the headlight of the Nigerian community. If anybody demands money from you, call us to inform us. We will punish anybody found guilty of taking money from people”. The NIDOG, as well, highlighted the importance of German-Arab cooperation on such a delicate matter.
