Mohammed Babandede, the Comptroller-General of Nigeria Immigration Service, on Sunday, dismissed the circulated video on visa arrival policy on social media, describing it as fake.
The Comptroller in a statement made available to the media said, “that video has the tendency of misinforming the public and cast doubt on the good intentions of the government.”
“All official releases are done on our official website www.immigration.gov.ng, as the most credible and approved platform on which such sensitive national issues can be disseminated and circulated.
“The service is, therefore, calling on the general public to disregard the fake video, while assuring them of highly professional service delivery in the interest of the nation,” the statement by the NIS spokesman, Sunday James, read.
The circulated video became viral on the social media space with the believe that President Muhammadu Buhari has commenced the visa-on-arrival-policy for Africans in four major international airports across the country.
Recall, many were against the policy, noting that it might worsen the security challenges facing the country.
