Expressing disappointment, the lady lamented how uncomfortable the process was and how belittling it made her feel.


In the caption of her video, she wrote, “Renewing my passport and they had to take my picture.

“They said I can’t have my picture with my lashes done. They are saying I have to cut my lashes. I’m so sad man”.

Nigerians React

Perhaps the lady had come online to cry out expecting that Nigerians would back her up.

However, to her greatest surprise, many lashed her for failing to adhere to the instructions in the first place.

olivia__davids stated: “Don’t y’all read the guidelines before going for passport?”.


holy_spireet opined: “Some of you will embarrass yourself even when you know it’s wrong. Eyelashes won’t allow the camera to capture your eyes and eye bag well. Not in Nigeria alone. Same wey you can’t take a passport photograph with a cap or glasses”.

abbyabus clarified: “The guidelines are on the website, but you all want to trend. Every eke market day, “they asked me to take out my eye lashes” 🤣”.

daintyrossy said: “Did she not know before? It’s your identity no fake anything. Even nose ring not allowed lip-gloss too”.

bound2fido penned: “They gave me scarf to cover my cleavage 😂. They gave the lady before me black wig to wear cos she dyed her hair pink 😂😂😂”.
