Looks as if the Nigerian govt has caught on at last. A new passport type is to be issued. See http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/6938757.stm

The Nigeria Immigration Service says it plans to phase out the machine-readable passport currently in use


... over the next 25-30 years probably.

I love the immigration chief's admission that "People have been tampering with the data page of our current passport. We found out that some fraudulent people often peel off the data page of the passports and substitute pictures of the genuine owners with fake ones." Wherever did they get this piece of information from and when? I think the Nigerian population should be told!!

Anyway, if Nigerians wishing to exchange their current passports for the new electronic one will have to pay an administrative fee of 8,500 naira ($67), maybe they'll try to work this into their scams. Maybe a little competition to spot the first reference in a scam??
