GIST -  Warning! What Nigerian Immigration Will Do To All Foreigners Who Vote During The Elections
#1
NIS officers
The Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) has reiterated its
warning to foreign nationals to keep off voting areas
during elections or face prosecution, deportation, The
Nation reports.
King Ekpedeme, the head of the service in Lagos gave
the warning during a phone chat with our Correspondent
on Friday.
He said that the NIS had in the past five months
engaged leaders of foreign nationals especially those
from the Economic Community of West and Central
African States (ECOWAS), (ECCAS) to speak to their
people on the need to stay out of Nigeria’s elections.
Ekpedeme also said the service had retrieved several
Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) from none Nigerians,
adding that it has emplaced mechanisms to forestall
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.
“We have also made it clear that anyone found will be
prosecuted and afterwards deported to their country. I
want to believe that the message has been well received
by them. This election is for Nigerians only and none
Nigerians should stay in their homes.“
