President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the Nigeria Immigration Service to improve Surveillance and Control around the nation’s borders.
President Buhari also directed the service to ensure that criminals do not find Nigeria as a safe haven, to hide and perpetrate their criminality.
The President gave the directive in his speech at the virtual inauguration of the NIS Technology Building in Abuja today.
He instructed all security agencies to raise their performance in protecting lives and property with a mandate that the Country’s Global Security Index must be improved.
President Buhari promised them that his regime will give the needed support for their operations.
He urged the NIS to collaborate with International Security Organisations like INTERPOL in safeguarding the borders.
President Buhari commended the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola for consistently pushing for the completion of the Technology Building which will serve as the Command and Control Centre of the NIS as well as the repository of personal data of Nigerians and expatriates resident in Nigeria.
