Immigration Promotes 7,000 Officers NIS

The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has promoted 7,000 men across various ranks and departments, as approved by its Board.

A statement by the Acting Public Relations Officer, Kenneth Kure, noted that the promotion was contained in a letter by the Secretary of the Immigration, Civil Defence, Correctional and Fire Service Board, Alhaji Jafaru Ahmed.  

It reads: “The promoted officers and men include both senior officers who sat for the regular exams, and junior staff who were upgraded after acquiring additional qualifications.”

Acting-Comptroller General, Mrs. Wuraola Adepoju, also approved the appointment of former spokesman of the NIS, Tony Akuneme, as Comptroller of FCT Command. Comptroller Joseph Dada is now the Principal Staff Officer to the Comptroller-General. Dada was, until his recent appointment, the Comptroller in charge of Marine Border Corps in the Service Headquarters.

The statement added that 12 Comptrollers were recently redeployed.

The CG urged the officers and men to put the image of the Service above personal interests as it remained a foremost agency for international visitors. She promised to prioritise personnel welfare, asserting that henceforth, promotion would be based strictly on seniority, hard work and dedication to duty.
