Spokesperson of the service, Mr Sunday James, said in a statement issued to newsmen on Saturday in Abuja that the officers went through the 45th Superintendent Basic Course.
He said the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, while congratulating the graduands, urged them to remain guided by the trainings they had received and the agency’s rules of engagement, in their official conducts.
According to him, the minister further assures them that the ministry will continue to ensure that genuine needs of all the Services under its purview, are attended to for enhanced service delivery.
He said the Comptroller-General of the NIS, Mr Muhammad Babandede, in his remark, reminded the graduating officers of coming into an IT-Driven Service that placed high premium on digitisation, systems automation and professionalism.
