NIGERIA TO LAUNCH CONTROL CENTRE FOR ONLINE BORDER MONITORING

The Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) will launch a control centre for online border monitoring by next year and also activate complaints centres, says the Comptroller General of Immigration, Mohammed Babadede.

Announcing this here Monday, he said migration had become a major problem and advised his officers not to allow Nigeria to become a victim. “We must patrol and protect our borders to curtail irregular migrants so as to fight terrorism,” he added.

He also told officers to ensure proficiency in allowing in foreigners because many of them had taken over jobs from Nigerians. “We are so careless and so foreigners have taken over our jobs, including driving taxes, taken over both the mining and oil and gas sectors. You must change and bring about a better Nigeria.”

He advised officers to adapt to the change mantra, positive attitudinal change canvassed by the government, saying: “There must be tangible change. It’s not going to be business as usual.”
