Immigration CG Adepoju Bows Out, Begs Successor To Sustain Ongoing Reforms


The out-gone Comptroller-general of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Mrs. Caroline Wura-Ola Adepoju, has urged her successor, Mrs. Kemi Nanna Nandap, to sustain the significant milestones and the impactful transformation achieved under her watch in order to put the Service on a higher and sustained level of development.

Adepoju, whose tenure ended on Thursday, February 29, 2024, buttressed that by sustaining the international reforms in travel documents, border management, visa, passport administration and the migration management reform, the Service will effectively strengthen the nation’s internal security.

The outgone CGI, who made the appeal at her pull-out parade ceremony as the 18th Comptroller-general of the Nigeria Immigration Service in Abuja, said her successor needed to strengthen public confidence and overall competitiveness, the spirit of excellence, technology, highly motivated personnel and satisfied citizenry, for a more competitive economy that will continue to attract commendations.

Adepoju, who called on Nandap to key into the buy-in of all stakeholders in the migration business, said she must do well to periodically invite past CGIs to share experiences and contribute to the process, with an eye for wide-ranging consultations and the thorough processing of ideas and evidence.

She expressed gratitude to President Bola Tinubu, who kick-started his administration with her appointment as the 18th CGI.

The Minister of Interior, Dr Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, appreciated Adepoju for not just raising the bar in the Service but for the women in the society.
