Heirs Insurance Group, has donated a 30KVA solar power station to the Ikoyi Passport Office, of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), to facilitate 24-hour passport production, a major challenge of the Service. 

Through this project, Heirs Insurance Group demonstrated its commitment to sustainability and community development with a focus on impacting the lives of Nigerians. 

Non-Executive Director, Heirs Holdings, Dr Awele  Elumelu (OFR) the parent company of the Heirs Insurance Group, led the delegation for the ribbon-cutting ceremony, alongside the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Mrs. Caroline Wura-ola Adepoju. 

She said the group made the donation because it discovered that Passport issuance at the Nigeria Immigration Service has been plagued by frustrating delays in the recent past, mostly influenced by erratic power supply. 

During her speech, Elumelu expressed her enthusiasm for the positive impact of the project, also drawing attention to the deliberate use of solar power which aligns with the group’s commitment to clean energy solutions, a facet of its long-term sustainability goals. 

She said: “As a Group, we continue to take pride in proactively creating value that impacts our community positively. This solar power initiative reiterates our commitment to improve lives and transform our country, and by extension, our continent.”
