President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Idris Isah Jere, a Deputy Comptroller General in charge of Finance and Account, as the Acting Comptroller General of Immigration Service.
This followed the retirement of the Comptroller General, Muhammad Babandede, from service.
Babandede was appointed as the Comptroller General of the NIS on the 15th of May 2016.
He took over from Martin Kure Abeshi.
Speaking at a valedictory session on Friday, Babandede said he left Immigration better than he found it.
He promised to always be ready to assist whenever he is called on by the Service.
