Immigration urges personnel to shun corruption, embrace patriotism
The Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Mohammed Babandede, has urged personnel to shun corruption and embrace patriotism.This, he said, is the hallmark of the development of any nation.
Speaking at the closing ceremony of a five-day capacity building for an improved service delivery, Babandede, who was represented by Comptroller K.N. Nandap, maintained that human capital development must never wane in the Service.
According to him, the need to introduce regular drilling of personnel in the civil and public service for optimal service delivery was paramount. Organised by the Centre for Management Development (CMD), the five-day workshop held in Abuja, was on, Strategic Leadership and Management for Senior Management Officers of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS).
Babandede lauded the symbiotic relationship between both parastatals, adding that the personnel always come back with transformational leadership and management skills, which are cascaded to the lower ranks.
Earlier in his remark, the Acting Director-General, CMD, Bitrus Danharbi Chinoko, who was represented by the Acting Director, Administration and Human Resources, Mohammed Nuhu, commended the leadership of the NIS for its determination to invest in human capital development through training and re-training of its personnel.
Noting that everything rises and falls on leadership, the reason CMD is committed to building strategic leadership platforms in various government agencies, Chinoko said: “This training is to expose officers to wider and more innovative ways of thinking on a daily basis about the entire goals of the orgainisation.”
Also speaking, the CMD’s Director of Accreditation and Curriculum Development, Kabir Mohammed, appealed to NIS to organise regular training for its personnel to build their capacity to ensure improved service delivery.
Mohammed said part of the Centre’s role is to conduct an impact assessment survey at the various work stations of the trained officers to see how they were putting the training acquired into practice.
Some of the participants, who spoke during the closing programme, said such training should be introduced to all civil and public servants in order to build capacities. Participants were issued certificates at the end of the workshop.
