Earlier today Folarin Falz Falana, the originator of the Bop daddy challenge which the 5 immigration ladies took part in, wrote a letter addressed to the Comptroller General of NIS, Muhammed Babandede, asking him to suspend the proposed deployment of the ladies from their current work location.
Few hours after he posted the letter on his Twitter, the NIS responded by announcing that the re-deployment of the ladies has been suspended pending their investigation on the issue:
The attention of the Comptroller General Muhammad Babandede MFR has been drawn to some trending matters on some social media platforms regarding the deployment of some of our Personnel to some Formations across the country.
2. It is important to note that staff deployment remains a vital practice of regimented organizations such as ours and should be seen as such. As an agency, we maintain zero tolerance to any matters bordering on offences against discipline among members of our workforce irrespective of gender.
3. We have high premium for staff development and indeed encourage personal efforts but that must be within the confines of our rules and regulations.
4. The matter involving the Personnel in question is still being investigated and therefore,the Comptroller General has directed that the earlier Posting Order be put on hold pending the conclusion of the investigation.
