By Nurat Uthman

The Comptroller General of Immigration, Kemi Nandap, has reaffirmed the Nigeria Immigration Service’s commitment to effective border governance during an assessment tour of border areas in Katsina and Jigawa states.

This was contained in a statement signed by the NIS spokesperson, Kenneth Udo, on Saturday.

As part of the tour, Nandap inspected key facilities at the Fago Patrol Base, Daura Forward Operational Base, Kongolam Border Control Post, and Magatari Control Post, focusing on the ongoing e-border projects.

Addressing stakeholders in the border communities, including traditional leaders, youth leaders, transport unions, and market women, Nandap “solicited for their cooperation in safeguarding our borders, especially the vast unmanned areas,” the statement read.

She highlighted the dangers posed by transborder organised crimes such as migrant smuggling and human trafficking, urging the communities to provide valuable information on the activities of irregular migrants.

During interactions with other security agencies, Nandap emphasised the need for continued collaboration to ensure effective border governance.

“A safe border is a safe nation,” she remarked, underscoring the importance of joint efforts in maintaining national security.
