It is with pleasure that I welcome the Honorable Minister of Interior, Hon. (Dr.) Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo and his team to this occasion. The commissioning of 30 operational vehicles for border surveillance and patrol.

Distinguished guests, key stakeholders, very senior officers and men of the Nigeria Immigration Service, I welcome you all to this important event, a tangible effort to enhance the security and integrity of our nation’s borders, which is in line with the renewed hope agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR.

As Comptroller General of Immigration, I am acutely aware of the imperative role that effective border surveillance and patrol play in safeguarding our sovereignty, protecting our citizens, preserving our economic prosperity as well as facilitating regular, safe, and orderly migration. These 30 new vehicles represent a concrete investment in our capacity, providing our dedicated officers with the tools needed to carry out their duties.

The acquisition of these vehicles underscores our unwavering commitment to border security and our determination to stay one step ahead of those who seek to undermine our laws and threaten our safety. With enhanced mobility, our border patrol teams will be better equipped to detect and deter illegal activities, including smuggling of migrants, trafficking in persons and other transnational crimes.

This investment in Border Security will be complimented with a rejig of our Border Corps architecture to include agile Sector Commanders to carry out consistent surveillance and patrol of our border in line with our core mandate.

As we commission these vehicles into service, I charge all our officers and men to diligently utilize and maintain them. Own the responsibility of securing our borders, be dogged & watchful. Have integrity and ensure that you do not partake in any acts that contravene our laws or tarnish the image of the Nigerian Immigration Service. We will not tolerate any compromise to the nation’s security. With that being said, I have faith in you all.

Finally, I wish to profoundly thank the Honourable Minister of Interior, Hon. (Dr.) Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo for his unwavering support to the Nigeria Immigration Service in achieving unprecedented heights of efficiency in Migration Management and Border Security.
