Immigration Withdraws Foreign Postings Of 80 Officers

Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has withdrawn 80 officers from their postings to foreign countries.

Gatekeepers News reports that new comptroller-general (CG) of the service, Kemi Nandap, ordered the withdrawal of their postings to foreign countries withdrawn by Kemi Nandap, new comptroller-general (CG) of the service.

The officers had been posted to a slew of Nigerian missions abroad by Caroline Wura-Ola Adepoju, who recently retired as CG of the service.

They were expected to be at these new stations abroad for at least three years.

However, in a letter dated March 5, Nandap, through the Assistant Comptroller-General, G.C Didel, asked the officers to return their original posting letters to “effect certain procedural and administrative issues”.

The letter read, “I am directed to request all officers affected to return their original posting orders to enable the service effect certain procedural and administrative issues.


“The letters should be returned to the SA-CGIS (Foreign Desk) on or before Thursday, March 9, 2024.

“You are to ensure strict compliance.”
