Fifty-five newly recruited officers of the Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, have graduated, and 52 senior officers promoted to various positions at the NIS Enugu State Command.
Mrs Azuka Halliday, the Assistant Comptroller General, disclosed this at the passing out parade of the newly recruited personnel and decoration of promoted officers on Thursday at the Command.
She said the total number of graduates is 55, made up of 27 males and 28 females.
Halliday tasked the newly recruited personnel to see their enlistment into the service as a call to duty to serve their fatherland with a sense of patriotism, discipline, determination, selflessness, and integrity.
She admonished them to consider themselves privileged to be among the recruited officers, telling them to be more proactive and committed in their duties.
According to her, the promoted personnel had done so well in their former ranks and, therefore, were promoted to their new positions.
She said that a lot and the best were expected from them.
“This is the period to ensure that we manage our borders properly. We should ensure we do our best with transparency,” she said.
