The President who joined the commissioning event via the Zoom technology stated that NIS Data/Command and Control Centre as a repository of personal data of Nigerians and expatriate is in line with his administration drive to implement policy that will protect and enhance the living standard of Nigerians.
He charged the NIS to be relentless in keeping the border safe by ensuring that criminal elements do not find Nigeria as safe heaven to hide and perpetrate crimes. He further urged the Service to “collaborate with international security agencies to safeguard the border because a safe border is prerequisite to a safe nation.”
In his Welcome address, the Comptroller General of Immigration, Muhammad Babandede stated that the Nigeria Immigration Service has evolved into a world class Migration Management Agency capable of playing its pivotal role to national security.
Babandede added that the Data Command and Control Centre also known as NIS Technology Building could not have come at a better time than now as it has placed the Service in a vantage position to confront the criminality in the forms of terrorism, migrant smuggling/ human trafficking.
