Good evening Chairmen, Coordinator’s and Supervisors. Thanks for all the calls, prayers and best wishes since I took I’ll. I am improving with each passing day and hopefully in a couple of days, I should be back to full fitness.

After several weeks of hard and dedicated work in protecting our boundaries, the time has come for us to scale down on some of the activities with regard to the boundary enforcement. Consequently, with effect from Tuesday 23rd June, the Task Force and Boundary activities will be suspended.

All Chairmen are to ensure the dismantling of any blockades and ensure that unscrupulous persons do not attempt to engage in illegal activities. As we try to go back to the new normal, Chairmen are advised to ensure the continued sensitization of Citizens on the necessary protocols.

Once again, well done guys and really proud of the work done to keep our people safe.

Thanks and warm regards,
Chiedu Ebie
