The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has urged Immigration and Correctional Services personnel to shun corruption and be professional in discharging their duties.
The minister gave the advice while decorating six new Deputy Comptrollers-General of Nigeria Correctional Service (NCoS) and two from the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), on Thursday in Abuja.
He said the country has launched reforms of the services and urged all personnel to contribute to the success of the reforms.
Aregbesola said they must work with patriotism and serve Nigeria with diligence.
The minister particularly tasked Immigration personnel to stamp out all forms of corrupt practices in passport administration.
“You must live above board through conscious display of professionalism, integrity, dedication and hard work for the betterment of the country,” he said.
He said the reforms were meant to positively impact on Nigerian citizens.
“I have no doubt that the newly promoted DCGs will step up their groove and deliver resounding successes in this regard”.
