Yenagoa—Authorities of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) in Bayelsa State have launched a beautification campaign of the command operational offices with the planting of over thirty trees in the state.
The NIS, under the leadership of Comptroller James Sunday weekend embarked on a massive green project by planting trees around the command landscaped areas.
This was contained in a statement issued and signed by the NIS Comptroller, James Sunday on Saturday.
The command directed Chief Superintendent, Funwei Ebikedoumini, who is in charge of the Border Management unit of the command to liaise with the office of the Director Bayelsa State Garden, Mr. Austin to use their gardening expertise to assist in planting thirty (30) palm trees.
The purpose according to the statement is to beautify the command’s environment from the entrance and surroundings, taking advantage of the flooded soil which has the capability of sustaining deep-rooted plants for their survival and growth.
The statement reads, “The tree planting exercise will be extended to the other facilities of the service at the Immigration Old Command now Immigration Barracks in the heart of Yenagoa, the Passport Office all within Yenagoa township as the next phase of the tree planting project.
“A clean and beautiful environment is in the heart of a good corporate outlook, as a service that has more international dealings, and first contact with the international communities, we cannot afford to operate in a shabby, unkept, and uncomely environment.
“Our public needs a decent and serene atmosphere, well ventilated and healthy for investment, business transactions that are related to Immigration Service.
“We are committed and will continue to offer cutting edge services, courteously, diplomatically, and humanly”
The NIS Comptroller urged the members of the public not to hesitate to notify the command of any misconduct done by any personnel of the command.
“Any member of the public that has any complaint against any erring official should contact the office of the Comptroller at Bayelsa Palm both for redress and sanction of such erring staff.
“The Command will not and have not condoned any untoward attitude or disservice to the public by any official of the service under the command.”
