…says his proposed Ministry of Internal security will take advantage of reforms in NIS
Gombe State Governor, Alhaji Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya has visited the headquarters of the Nigeria Immigration Service in Abuja where he was received by the Comptroller General, Muhammad Babandede.
During the visit, the Governor was enrolled for the new enhanced 10 year validity passport with National Identification Number, NIN in line with the Federal Government’s directive which prescribed NIN as a prerequisite for acquiring the new enhanced passport.
The Governor commended the effort of the Federal Government in supporting the NIS to deliver its mandate which resulted in several turnkey projects and innovations he saw at its headquarters.
Alhaji Inuwa Yahaya promised to support the Service to bring to fruition its projects in Gombe and its personnel to enjoy their duty tour in the state.
He said his proposed Ministry of Internal Security will take advantage of the reforms initiated by the Nigerian Immigration Service and tap from its resourcefulness in coming up with strategies that will help in maintaining law and order in the state.
Gombe state houses one of the oldest immigration formations and the command is now witnessing some reforms and increased activities, including processing Combined Expatriate Residence Permit and Aliens Card (CERPAC), a feat, the Governor described as a commendable milestone.
