President Muhammadu Buhari has come out to direct Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, to improve surveillance and control around the nation’s borders.

He recently revealed this via a statement by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, Buhari gave the directive in his speech at the virtual inauguration of NIS Technology Building, and he wants 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.

He then vowed that his government will give the needed support for their operations, while urging the NIS to collaborate with international security organisations such as INTERPOL in safeguarding the borders.

His words, “As a security agency, I charge you to be relentless in carrying out your statutory duties of keeping our borders safe while you ensure that criminal elements don’t find Nigeria as a safe haven to hide and perpetrate their criminality.”

“I urge you to actively collaborate with international security organisations like the INTERPOL, in safeguarding our borders. Remember that a safe border is a prerequisite for a safe nation.”
