Our agencies’ alignment with the Ministry of Interior necessitates a synergy to achieve our mandates effectively, in terms of enhancing border security and immigration management in the state. 

“My visit to your office is to obtain briefs and to strengthen the inter-agency synergy between NIS and NSCDC.

“Thank you for your warm reception and continued collaboration with NIS,” he said.
