Share This





The Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) has resounded its warning to foreign citizens to move out of voting areas during elections or face prosecution, deportation, The Nation reports.

King Ekpedeme, the leader of the service resident in Lagos promulgated the warning during a phone chat with our Correspondent on Friday.

He pointed out that the NIS had in the past engaged leaders of foreign citizens those from the Economic Community of West and Central African States (ECOWAS) in particular, to diligently address their people on the need to stay out of Nigeria’s elections.




Ekpedeme also spoke of the service retrieving many Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) from citizens who are not Nigerians. He also said that he has set in processes to prevent foreigners from taking part in the exercise.

He said: “Lagosians should not be worried about the possibility of foreign nationals voting in this election.

Already, the borders have been closed today and the NIS had been retrieving PVCs from non-Nigerians.

“Also, we have had several engagements with the leaders of our brothers from neighbouring countries who have spoken to their nationals and assured us they will not come out in election.

DON'T YOU THINK EKPEDEME'S ACTION WILL PROMOTE A FREE AND FAIR ELECTION?
