Benin, – The Nigeria Immigration Services (NIS) has charged its officers and men to key into the Federal Government’s policy of Security, Economy and Transparency (SET) designed to improve service delivery in Nigeria.
The Assistant Comptroller of Immigration, Mrs Justina Ahmadu, gave the charge on Thursday in Benin, while inaugurating a newly constructed waiting Hall for passport applicants.
According to her, the Federal Government is concerned about re-positioning the service for effective service delivery to the public.
She explained that officers and men should study the SET documents and implement it in their various departments, units and Commands to win public trust in line with best practices.
While congratulating officers and men of the command on the successful completion of the project, Ahmadu charged them not to rest on their oars in the discharge of their constitutional duties.
She charged them to continue to add value to whatever duty assigned them.
In his remarks, the Comptroller of Immigration, Edo State Command, Mr Kayode Enioolorunda, said the project was initiated and completed by the command to ensure the comfort of applicants.
According to him, the new facility will reduce the stress applicants go through while waiting for their passport to be processed.
The Comptroller said that the project cost the command about N5.54 million, saying that the money was a donation from good spirited individuals and organisations.
Highpoint of the unveiling was the naming of the new hall after the Comptroller-General of Immigration, Mr Muhammed Babandede.
