Buhari Finally Orders Immigration Boss Jere To Proceed On Retirement

The Federal Government has asked the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Isah Jere, to proceed on retirement.

In a letter from the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Services Board, dated 17th of April, 2023, and addressed to the NIS boss, to Federal Government directed him to hand over to the most senior officer in the Service.

This directive is coming following the allegation that the outgoing NIS boss was making efforts to get another extension to his stay in the Service.

Jere has had his retirement extended for a year, from last year April to April 24, 2023.

Some officers of the Service had threatened to embark on a protest should the Federal Government extend his tenure again.

However, in the letter signed by Obasi Edozie Edmund, the acting secretary of the Board, the federal government directed him to “hand over to the most senior Officer Deputy Comptroller General on or before Monday 24th April 2023, pending Mr. President’s appointment of a substantive Comptroller General of the Service.”
