Barr. Ejiofor was a State Director of Security (SDS) across the country before retiring in line with the Federal government’s 35 years in service.

In his acceptance speech, Barr Ejiofor, who is also a Fellow of the National Institute for Security Studies (NISS), stated that his leadership will take the association to an enviable height by ensuring that it occupies its rightful position among alumni associations of similar institutions.
He emphasised that NISS, the premier training institute on intelligence, security, governance and law enforcement, deserves to occupy a prime position within the intelligence community in Nigeria and the world at large.
Ejiofor added that the Alumni Association of the National Institute for Security Studies is the organ that will showcase, highlight and exploits the silent achievements of the institute.
He further stated that he would use his network among the security and intelligence community to attract projects, more funding and better recognition for the association and the institute.
Earlier in his remarks, the Commandant of NISS, Alh. A.S. Adeleke thanked the Alumni Association for its interest in the institute’s well-being.
He urged members to use their individual and collective networks to attract projects and recognition to the institute.
