Immigration Makes Le4 Billion for Salone

The Immigration Department of Sierra Leone has earned its Freetown office a record breaking history owing to a whopping Le 4 billion it collected as revenue for the year 2010.

The department is said to have made a considerable number of accumulating achievements in just about three years of reformation unfailing corresponding to the actualized vision of the president’s agenda for change.

The leadership of Immigration with support from hard and head fixed workers, so to say, persons attached to the national revenue sector, is set with a draft proposal targeted at reviewing the old-fashioned 1965 Citizens Act.

Such a move is geared towards transforming the institution from that of a sleeping society to one that is an autonomous body within ambits of the public sector.

Alusine Joaque, who doubles as Immigration’s administrative and human resource manager told Sierra Express Media that the service of the public sector reform unit has done a severe management and functional review and its recommendations currently await Cabinet and Parliamentary approval. “The department in line with the draft proposal intends introducing four directorate positions which include operational, corporate planning, administration and personnel, media and public relations in the enhancement of the excellent running of the institution,” Joaque said.

“The reformed organ gram suggested by the nations legislated immigration unit tied with catalogued developments spearheaded by the Chief of Immigration, Kolifa Koromah and his team of professionals; the NRA section at the Immigration and staff generally.”

It is told that 50 immigration assistants have been recruited, trained and are currently deployed as border guards at our porous border towns and other crossing points.

Investigation says that the review is meant to capacitate the human resource base of staff of Immigration in the enhancement of national standards and objectives.

“Our expectation of achieving a modern day immigration service that is marred with integrity and excellence seemed flying high,” Joaque says.

The department is said to have also been brilliantly capacitated due to chains of trainings mostly funded by our international partners.”

“Though plagued with archaic immigration laws that call for unconditional change, the department intends to step up measures that complement the security sector in Sierra Leone.
