Nigeria, Gambia partner on migration, border management
The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and the Gambian Department of Immigration are to train officers from the latter nation on effective border management and deployment of information and communications technology (ICT) to contain migration challenges.
Comptroller General of the NIS, Muhammad Babandede, while receiving a delegation of immigration officers from The Gambia, led by the country’s Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Moussier Assan Tangara, yesterday in Abuja, said the partnership would further international relations between the two countries.
He urged the visitors to leverage the move by staying focus and sharing ideas with their colleagues during the interactive sessions.A communiqué issued by the service’s public relations officer, Sunday James, said Babandede stressed the need for “engaging with the Economic Community for West African States (ECOWAS) for the facilitation of such visits to other countries to avoid undue protocol across the border entry points.”
