NIS: no palliative received


THE Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) said on Monday that it has not received any COVID-19 palliative for sharing to its officers from any agency of government or private individual.

Its Comptroller General Muhammad Babandede, made this known in a statement by Mr Sunday James, the spokesman of the Service.

He said payments made to NIS officers were routine payments processed and paid in line with extant rules.

The Immigration boss dismissed the allegation of sharing palliatives to his cronies as false, saying that there was no iota of truth in it.

Babandede said the public should disregard insinuations in some quarters that some amount was received and shared among some officers.
