The Nigeria Immigration Service has decorated and promoted no fewer than 26 officers in Niger State Command.
The state Comptroller of the Immigration Service, Animim Daughter Hornby, disclosed this while conducting the ceremony alongside representatives of the Nigeria Security Civil Defence Corps and Department of State Services in Niger State.

Hornby urged the newly promoted officers to be resilient in the discharge of responsibility that comes with their new positions.
She also urged those who were eligible but were not promoted to be patient "as promotion comes from God.”
The state Command's Public Relations Officer, Abubakar Mukhtar, stated that out of the 3,313 officers promoted in the country, 26 in Niger State Command were affected.
He said that among those decorated were two Assistant Comptrollers of Immigration N.S. Waziri and J. Yagba and the Personal Assistant to the State Comptroller that was promoted to the rank of Superintendent of Immigration.
The promotion was made due to the release of results for the 2018 senior officers’ promotion interview, and a total of 3,313 officers were promoted to new ranks.
