Actor Bolanle Ninalowo gushed about the warm reception he received at the Ikoyi immigration office on Tuesday, November 29, 2022, while picking up his passport.
The immigration officers enthusiastically welcomed Bolanle into their midst, showing him around the major offices, taking pictures and videos with him, and making him feel at ease.
Sharing a video clip from the visit, Bolanle Ninalowo wrote on Instagram “So I went to collect my passport to Japa from Nigeria yesterday oo and I received and left with love and blessings.
Thanks to the Nigeria immigration service office in Ikoyi for such a delightful honor @nis_officers.
Special thanks to the Deputy Comptroller of Immigration service “Mr. AYEGBUSI ODUNAYO OLUGBENGA” (PCO Ikoyi passport office) for the warm reception. God bless” Bolanle Ninalowo appreciated.
The act has since sparked mixed reactions amongst Bolanle Ninalowo’s fans as many of them mocked the passport officers for only being warm to celebrities and rude to the average Nigerian.
