…visits the new office complex.
Governor of Ekiti State and Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has applauded the outgoing Comptroller of Immigration Services in Ekiti State, Mrs. Dibia Ifeoma for her contribution towards the advancement of immigration services in the State.
Dr. Fayemi gave the commendation on Friday after being conducted round the new office complex of the establishment in Ado-Ekiti.
The Governor, who also visited the new flag house of the establishment, described Mrs. Dibia’s achievements as ‘significant landmarks’ for which she would always be remembered.
Dr. Fayemi thanked Comptroller Dibia, who would retire next month, for contributing her quota to the development of Ekiti and for displaying a deep sense of commitment, passion, and love for the advancement of immigration services in the State.
He said: “Within the limited period she has been Comptroller in Ekiti State, she has put significant landmarks in the State, this is the first of its kind in the whole of Ekiti State, and she also managed to build a flag house, and a divisional office at Ise-Orun and another one is coming up in Oye.
“So you can see that there is every reason I should come because she’s on her way out of our State, this is her last assignment in Immigration services. We are very grateful for her commitment, her passion, and her love for Ekiti.”
Comptroller Dibia, who was full of gratitude to the Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Services, Mohammed Babade and the Governor of Ekiti State, said it was the cordial relationship between the duo that facilitated the supports she got in executing the various projects she carried out during her stay in the State.
She mentioned that her administration was able to build an office complex, which she described as the first in Southwest.
The Ekiti Immigration boss added that she was able to put up a five-bedroom self-contain apartment for divisional Officers at Ise-Orun and also secure a fenced land for the divisional office at Irepodun-Ifelodun Local Government Areas of the State.
Explaining the motive behind the visit of Dr. Fayemi to those projects, she said; I am retiring next month and I think I have to report to His Excellency the same way I reported when I was posted to Ekiti. And before I leave, I also want him to see the structures I have been able to put up within the period I kept here and that was what prompted his coming, because I will not be here again when the projects would be commissioned.
“His Excellency, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has a good working relationship with the Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Services, I am sure that is why we got a lot of things in Ekiti State”, she added.
