Jubilation As FG Fires Immigration Boss, Martins Abeshi
Staff of the Nigerian Immigration Service were seen jubilating when news filtered into their headquarters that the Comptroller-General of Nigerian Immigration Service NIS, Martin Abeshi.
Abeshi was reportedly sacked on Monday, but the news has been kept under wraps.
Although reasons for his sack were not immediately known, it was gathered that government’s decision may be connected with his handling of the recent replacement in the service.
The replacement, which was terribly abused by power brokers in the country, saw the CG allegedly employing his third wife and his eldest son into the service. Both recruits were said to be under-going training in Kano.
At the time he was appointed in September last year, Abeshi had already been slated to proceed on a three-month terminal leave beginning from October 2015.
It was gathered, yesterday, that Abeshi had been having running battle with some of his deputies and assistants,DCGs, and ACGs, who were not happy that the Comptroller General was still in office when he ought to have retired from the service since December 2015.
