FG Retires Acting Immigration Chief, Idris


The Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Isah Jere Idris, has been asked to go on retirement.

The board of the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Services Board, wrote on April 17, 2023 to the NIS boss, that the Federal Government directed him to hand over to the most senior officer in the Service.

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

Recall that Idris 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.”
