Alausa Passport office organised a Send-forth Party for two of its officers, Rasak Adebayo Akorede and Jerry Babalola, Assistant Comptrollers of Immigration (ACIs) as they sign out of active service after long years of service.
Officers, friends and we’ll wishers including representatives from the Lagos State Government, National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) joined the occasion to celebrate them for their outstanding performance and selfless service over the years.
Speaking at the occasion, DCI John Dashe, passport control officer (PCO), Alausa Passport Office, in his farewell message, described the retiring ACIs as selfless and disciplined Officers.
He commended them for their dedication to duty and encouraged them to remain the good men that they are as he wishes them better days ahead.
In his speech, he said that “retirement is not the end of life but the beginning of another life, which could turn out even better than their days in active service”.
It was an atmosphere of fun and merriment as friends and colleagues took turns to shower love, accolades and eulogies on the retiring ACIs, describing them as loving, cheerful, hardworking, dedicated and jovial Officers.
Comptroller of Customs and wife of one of the retiree, Mrs. Babalola who gave thanks to the almighty for bringing her husband thus far, expressed appreciation to Alausa Passport Office and the Nigeria Immigration Service for the support and honour given to her husband.
She specially thanked the PCO for keeping up with the good works of the Comptroller General of Immigration, Muhammed Babandede and for a befitting Send-forth Party.
Indeed, they have served the nation well and we wish them good success in their future endeavours.
