Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has come out to urge the Nigeria Immigration Service to save Nigeria from the imminent third wave of COVID-19.

He recently revealed this when he received the Comptroller of the Lagos State Command of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Bauchi Aliyu, at the State House, Alausa.

According to him, as the gatekeepers, NIS must keep working with frontline responders stationed at ports of entry across border posts to ensure in-bound travellers adhere to laid down COVID-19 protocols.

He added that Lagos State is currently monitoring events that may lead to the third wave of COVID-19 in the country and all hands must be on deck.

His words via his press secretary, “As the gatekeeper, Sanwo-Olu charged NIS to work with frontline responders stationed at ports of entry across border posts to ensure in-bound travellers adhere to laid down COVID-19 protocols.”

“We are monitoring events that may lead to the third wave of COVID-19 in the country and this is why we need to work together with the Nigeria Immigration Service. As the gatekeeper, you have statutory responsibility to work with our frontline health workers to ensure that people that are coming into the country obey our rules and conform with the protocols.”

“Nobody is above the law. We have designated some countries as red zones, and this is not discriminatory. We want to be able to monitor anybody coming from countries with high burden of the virus. We want the Immigration Service to play its role so that we can nip the influx of new variants in the bud. We know that the virus is usually imported; we must be vigilant and ensure all protocols and guidelines are strictly observed, especially at airports.”

“The Governor urged the Service to ensure passengers coming into the country were duly monitored and accounted for.”

“Sanwo-Olu accepted the Comptroller’s proposal for the mop-up of irregular migrants in Lagos, noting that such operations would help improve security in the state and aid the government to identify non-Nigerians working illegally in Lagos.”

“The Governor promised continued support and collaboration with the Service in order to make the state safe for investment and living.”

“Bauchi praised Sanwo-Olu for the State Government’s support for the Service, pledging that the Immigration was ready to partner with the current administration in improving the state’s mega city status.”

“The Comptroller also submitted a letter requesting the Governor’s support on logistics and operations.”
