The Canadian Government has gifted the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) 63 border security equipment.
The NIS received the 63 Migration Information and Data Analysis System equipment from the Canadian government on Friday by the Comptroller-General, NIS, Mr. Muhammad Babandede, at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport.
The NIS chief executive in his remarks said the equipment was in furtherance of their partnership with the Canadian government to strengthen security and migrant information management at the borders.
Babandede used the occasion to appreciate the seamless passengers’ clearance achieved by the NIS in the short period the border crossing system was installed.
“The system has been installed in many locations, including airports and land borders and that the 63 new ones donated by the Canadian government through the International Organisation for Migration would be utilised effectively.
“The NIS will continue to contribute to Nigeria’s security as well as the global security because a safe border in Nigeria has impact on a safer border everywhere in the world,” he said
