The attention of the Comptroller General of Immigration (CGI), Muhammad Balandede
MFR has been drawn to some reports about a misunderstanding between some of our
Personnel at the Oyo State Command Office and Officials of the Ibadan North Local
Government Area yesterday.
- The Comptroller General is disturbed that a minor misunderstanding was not quickly
resolved leading to an unnecessary scuffle between two friendly agencies that have
maintained very cordial relationship over the years.
- The Ibadan North Local Government Council remains one of the best immediate
neighbours and indeed the nearest democratic institution to the Oyo State Command Complex. Our agency has huge regards as well as honour for democratic institutions and thus should not be involved in anything to the contrary. The Service and Ibadan North Local Government Council have continued to enjoy excellent neighbourliness over the decades thereby making this altercation most unfortunate.
- The Comptroller General holds the Chairman of the Council and his Management team in high esteem and so has ordered an investigation into the unfortunate development.
- He appeals for calm stressing that due diligence will be taken to not only ensure amicable resolution of the matter but that any Personnel found to have acted unprofessionally is appropriately sanctioned.
