The Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, is set to establish a migration academy in Nigeria.

The decision which was taken at a meeting of ECOWAS Heads of Immigration in Abuja, in 2017 was to, among other things, train officers and border security personnel in the West African sub-region.

These were made known by the Comptroller-General of Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), Muhammad Babandede, on Saturday at the passing out parade of 396 cadets of the 44th Superintendent Basic Course in Kano.

He disclosed that the migration academy which would be sited in Tugga, Kebbi State, would also enhance regional cooperation and increase the capacity of the personnel.

He added that the officers would also learn French at the academy, just as he stated that some professors had been gathered to come up with new and responsive training curricula.

While pointing out that the efforts to reform the operational activities and welfare of the staff would increase, he implored them to be more dedicated and be disciplined.

Speaking at the occasion, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Georgina Ehuriah, urged those passing out to be “guided by the training you have received as well as by the agencies rules of engagement in your conduct.”

The Commandant of the training school, Mr. Richard Adegoke, was full of thanks to the government for creating a conducive environment for the cadets.

According to him, there was a serious need for the graduates to uphold and apply the requisite knowledge and good values they had imbibed during their training. (NAN)
