This is just as he has promised to pursue an absolute zero tolerance stand on corrupt tendencies in the service.
The new ACG made this known in his office during a chat with newsmen laying out some of his ideas to further better the three pillars that the Acting Comptroller General, Idris isa Jere identified as policy thrust of his administration.
According to him, reviewing border security strategies, enhanced service delivery as well as improved staff welfare are key areas he plans to further build upon.
On border security, he admitted that Zone A is arguably the busiest land, air and sea border and would take some synergy with other security agencies in Nigeria and Benin Republic as well as collaboration with border communities
He said the NIS is looking at local partnership with communities and deployment of technology to aid with manning the borders.
“Nigeria has an expansive border with well over 4000sq metres but for us in Zone A, thank God it is not that extensive but one thing I can tell you is as we have 15 control posts, we have hundreds of illegal roads that’s the essence of that paucity of our borders.
“If you line up all the immigration officers to hold hands our numbers will not be enough to man our borders, so how do we do it? That is why we need technology, we need information from the local communities.
“We have been partnering with then but we intend to take it a notch higher as when you engage with them, they will part information and within a short time we will respond.”
