NIS warns Non-Nigerians to steey clear of elections, borders to close March 26 to 28


Abuja- Mr David Parradang, the Comptroller-General, Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), on Wednesday warned Non-Nigerians resident in the country not to involve themselves in the forthcoming elections.
This is contained in a statement signed by Mr Chukwuemeka Obua, the Public Relations Officer of the service, and made available to newsmen in Abuja.
The statement said Parradang gave the warning during a meeting with some embassy officials and leaders of ECOWAS communities resident in Nigeria.

It said that Non-Nigerians, particularly those from neighbouring countries such as Republics of Cameroun and Chad, caught interfering in the electoral process would be made to face the law.
According to the statement, the warning became necessary to ensure that the existing robust relationship among member states in the sub-region is not undermined by unnecessary meddlesomeness in the internal electoral affairs of member states.
The statement also quoted the CG as saying ” Effective from midnight of  March 26 to midnight of March 28 2015, all land and sea borders across the country would be closed to allow for a hitch-free election”.
The statement enjoined the community leaders to advise their nationals who were in possession of Nigeria’s Permanent Voter Cards, National Identity Cards or Passport to surrender same immediately as anyone caught with any of them would be brought before the law. (NAN)
