The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has said that the service has converted 509 officers to superintendent cadre.
The spokesperson for the NIS, Sunday James, on Saturday, December 21, in a statement said the officers received their notice of conversion after completing the third Conversion and Upgrading Course at the Immigration Training School, Kano state.
James said the Comptroller General of the service, Muhammad Babandede, at the occasion, said there is the need for the officers to put what they learnt into action.
Babanded also said that the service had invested so much into training and capacity development.
“The CGI encouraged the participants to maximize the knowledge of ICT gained to uplift the standard expected of the service among other sister agencies without competing but complementing each other wherever and whenever the need arises."
“He, in the same vein, warned officers and men that as armed services, we cannot afford to be careless with the weapon, hence all officers of the service will undergo a drug test,” James said in the statement.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the CG of NIS had said that the service will remove barriers hindering the free movement of people within the continent.
