The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) on Tuesday, in Abuja, announced Deputy Comptroller Ekpedeme King as the new spokesperson of the Service.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that King is to take over from Assistant Comptroller Chukuemeka Obua, who has been redeployed to the Lagos Command.
Until his deployment, King was the second-in-Command at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos.
The posting is contained in a staff posting order vide NIS/ABJ/1027/VV/T111/562 dated Sept. 2, 2015.
The new spokesperson told NAN after a brief handover ceremony on Tuesday in Abuja that the Public Relations Unit would be repositioned to enhance professionalism.
He thanked the outgoing PRO for all the support and charged other officers of the unit to work as a team in the course of their duty.
He also called on journalist and media organisations to support the new administration in its bid to reposition the NIS in line with the change agenda of the Federal government.
It will be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari had on August, 27 announced Mr. Martin Abeshi as the new Comptroller-General (CG) of the NIS following the suspension of the former NIS CG, Mr. David Parradang.
