The Board of the Nigerian Immigration Service, NIS, has directed the acting Comptroller-General of the organisation, Isah Jere, to handover to his immediate junior.
This is contained in a letter issued on Wednesday in Abuja by the Acting Secretary of the Board, Edmund Obasi.
The same board oversees the Federal Fire Service, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and the Nigerian Correctional Service.
Mr Obasi, in the letter, said that the directive was sequel to the impending expiration of the one-year extension in office granted to Mr Jere by President Muhammadu Buhari via letter no. SH/COS/42/3/3/A/28, dated 22 April, 2022 which will be expiring on April 24.
Mr Jere was directed to handover to the most senior Deputy Comptroller-General of the service before April 24 pending when the president would appoint a substantive Comptroller-General.
The board expressed gratitude to Mr Jere for his immense contributions to the service and the country and wished him success in his future endeavours.
