The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, has warned new heads of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and Nigeria Prisons Service (NPS) that the present administration would not accept anything less than professionalism and efficient service delivery to Nigerians.
Dambazau gave the warning yesterday while decorating the newly- appointed Comptroller- General of the NIS, Mohammed Babandede, and his NPS counterpart, Ahmed Ja’afaru.
President Muhammadu Buhari had on Tuesday approved the appointment of both service chiefs after the retirement of their predecessors.
The minister charged the new NIS boss to end the delay in the issuance of passports to Nigerians and ensure general professionalism in the service.
He also tasked the new NPS head on the need to fast-track the prison decongestion process while ensuring better training and welfare for prisons officials.
The new Immigration boss, Mr Mohammed Babandede, who responded on behalf of both service chiefs, assured of their readiness to reposition both services.
