Babandede disclosed this on Thursday in Abuja when members of the House of Representatives Committee on Interior came on an oversight visit.
He said the immigration service was working with the Federal Government to ensure the production of e-passports through the Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Company Ltd. by 2018.
The comptroller-general said that the measure was to save cost, ensure security of critical data base, and create more jobs for Nigerians.
He added that the Minister of Interior has set up a committee to ensure that the plan is successful.
