It was gathered that over 5,000 officers were promoted by the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Prisons Services Board in batches from late last year to January.
Thousands of officers from the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Immigration (ASI) sat for the promotion examination last August.
But the officers are agitated, alleging that some of the lists were doctored to favour many candidates by the NIS headquarters based on ethnicity, religion, and personal connections, among others.
According to them, the headquarters deliberately left out state of origin and date of last promotion of the newly promoted officers in the lists to cover alleged fraud. They explained that the rule guiding promotion states that those with earlier last promotion dates are given priority over those last promoted at later dates.
The Nation further revealed that columns for date of last promotion and state of origin were missing in a copy of the promotion list. The list was signed by the Acting Director/Secretary of the board, Onuh J. Y. dated January 18, and addressed to the Comptroller General of NIS.
Another letter from the NIS Headquarters dated January 19 and signed by Y. D. Inusa, the Deputy Comptroller General of Immigration (HRM) on behalf of the Comptroller General, conveyed the same mesaage.
In the list, the Assistant Comptroller of Immigration (ACI) rank was dominated by candidates from the North. Immigrations Public Relations Officer (PRO) Sunday James last night said: “I have not seen the petition, so how do I react?”
I am not a member of the promotion committee. If I need to react I must see the content of what I am reacting to. It is what I know that I will talk about.” THINK YOUR FRIEND WOULD BE INTRESTED?
