OWERRI – The Nigerian Immigration Service, NIS, high command has advised its officers and men to shun corruption, laziness absenteeism and anything that would stain the image of the organization or risk the consequences of their action.
The Comptroller-General of NIS, Mrs. Roseline C. Uzoma, read the riot act during the passing out parade of the combined 16th Basic Inspectorate and 12th Pre-Basic Course at the Nigerian Immigration School, Umuowa, Orlu, Imo State.
“You must be dutiful, loyal and committed to the service to justify the training you have received in this school. I enjoin you to take your jobs seriously as you go back to your commands, as it remains the only basis for your relevance to the service,” Uzoma instructed.
She reminded the graduands that the NIS had spent enormous amount of money in their training, adding that her administration would not compromise the importance of training and retraining of its personnel.
“We are operating in a world environment that is ever changing and as security agents, we must rise up to the challenges that globalization presents in its entire ramification,” the NIS boss said.
Earlier in his address, the Commandant of the school, Mr. Raphael A. Keji, explained that the 187 that passed out at the event brought the total number of graduands, since the inception of the school in 1994, to 4,573.
