Immigration Comptroller General, Rose Uzoma, retired from service

Mrs. Rose Chinyere Uzoma, the Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), was today Tuesday 15th January retired from the service following the controversy that trailed the recruitment exercise of the agency.

A letter conveying her retirement was signed by the Minister of Interior and Chairman of CDFIPB, Comrade Abba Moro. Mrs Uzoma will be temporarily replaced by her deputy, Mr. Rilwan Bala Musa, pending when the agency gets a new Comptroller General.

Linda, why are you trying to make it sound better than what REALLY happened. She was SACKED, not "retired from service"! Use the word Lindostic Linda!

TWITS said...

Ok. they shd also fire those at the helms in Customs, NDLEA, etc. cos they are also favouring those from certain parts of the country. Nigeria and prejudice! Madam, its well wt u- u r already about to attain your mandatory retirement age of 60. Thanks for protecting your own. We remain proud of you.

So quick to ascribe responsibility for the mess in the recruitment to her and use it as a basis to sack here.

I wonder why GEJ doesn't have the 'cojones' to apply same sledgehammer as regards the rot in NNPC!

This woman was due for retirement in March after attaining 60 years. She is starting her retirement leave from 16th January. Now people have turned the story to mean that she was sacked.. Haba. Linda, but I expected better from you. You should have confirmed your information.

Comptroller is correct. Ask Google if in doubt.

Yes, olodo. It is Comptroller. I know your over sabi would think it is "controller".

Jonathan is indeed a fool.he is letting hausa people control him cus of his 2015 ambition.Northerners r d majority in customs,npa,faan,nnpc,ppmc and other juicy govt agencies.jst bcus she allowed d easteners 2 b more dan northerners in d recruitment,they retired her.its jst bad and stupid of jonathan. .........UNDISPUTED

Anonymous said...

Well done Madam for the good work you did at the Immigration service. The problem with Nigeria is that those who are upright and hard working get the end of the stick. Why couldn't Jonathan retire an honest worker gracefully? Is this encouraging to all those who work hard? Is this how to lure those who are scared by Nigeria's job insecurity? Madam, please hold your head high. You are simply marvellous!!!!

Stfu. I served with d NIS, and I passed out just some months back. I shared d same office with the department in charge of recruitment, and I know what I saw. She favoured just d easterners. It was just too glaring and bad. I only pity her cos she was to retire in March, but with this sack she has lost her benefits.

@TWITS
You are right. Inde Dikko should be fired too. There has been talk of certificate forgery as well as financing Boko Haram, yet he is still in power. GEJ should be fair and sack them all.

Anonymous said...

Sharrap my friend. There is no way in hell the Customs boss will be fired on recruitment matters. Who do you think he recruits into d service? Senators and other top shots candidates.The present set recruited this year and most candidates of the Minister of Finance.

So what if she favoured Easterners? What do you have to say about Jonathan's wife being a Perm Sec? What of the Hausas holding the plum jobs in govt? Yes, you were in NIS 6 months ago, what did you see that you have not seen before? By the way, who put you there sef? No be your long legs or man know man? Please leave this woman alone, you critic and stop pointing at an innocent soul. If Easterners applied and got the jobs, should the jobs be given to those who did not apply because they don't qualify? Haba, go siddon!

From what I had she had running battle with d minister who tried to bring his people into d service and she rejected them. He conducted d recruitment stuff himself & it was when he advised by d directors that it was illegal hw cancelled it. Madam hold ur head up high- u have run ur race well.

Pse leave Madam alone. What's wrong with 'favouring' Easterners if there are no qualified people? Is this quota business again? You obsever wey work for NIS 6 months ago, na who put you there in the first place? No be man know man? Wetin you talk as the Northerners dey get all the plum jobs for Nigeria? A beg, go siddon!!

Please read my post well about the CG of Customs. Do not display your illiteracy online. I simply said he should be fired for forgery and being one of the sponsors of Boko Haram.

Nigeria is such a messed up country! If Jonathan has used this same speed to deal with d corruption in NNPC,Federal work Ministry,and even get justice frm corrupt Former Governors,ppl wud have been hailing him.
Imagine EFCC going after small boys aNd girls who wanted to steal small mony frm Mrs Alakijas acconut? That's not what EFCC is meant for.
Jonathan is surrounded by a callous corrupt individuals who wiLl rope him in soon!

I happened to meet this woman when she was the deputy comptroller general. It was not like i knew her, i simply walked into their office to make enquiries and that was how I landed in her front, just like that with no appointment. The woman i interacted with was very professional and there's no way i'd believe that she conducted herself otherwise. Having said this, i read somewhere where she openly disagreed with the Minister. I'm pretty sure the man was overbearing and she couldn't care less what he did since she was due for retirement. GEJ don fall hand by allowing himself to be used in such manner, just the same way he did in the Nnaji matter. He should be careful the way he allows himself to be used by unscrupulous politicians. Why I dey even take panadol for another man wahala, e fit be say him sef na one of them. Pschiew!

MY TURN said...

Retired kor or tired of stealing and looting. I cant stand these animals, on my way back recently after waiting for the stupid conveyor belt for 4hours to get my bags, then struggling to load the 4 heavy bags on the weak trolley i paid 150 for, i got to customs and one fat bleached out woman who thought i had forex to dash out started asking me to open all 4 bags. All my begging fell on deaf ears after a while i lost it and started to shout. One of her pot bellied colleagues then walks over and says in yoruba..."eleyi o ni nkan kan fu n wa" meaning this one doesn't have anything for us? at that point i hissed put the opened bags back the bags on the trolley and walked away daring any of them to stop me.
