Government woos foreign investors with permits
The Federal Government has unveiled 28 Combined Expatriate Residence Permit and Alien Card (CERPAC) centres with a view to attracting Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) into the country.
Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Bello Dambazzau, said while commissioning the centres and donating 28 operational vehicles yesterday in Abuja, that the initiative would enhance the capacity of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) to discharge its statutory duties effectively.
According to him, the NIS is expected to deliver improved services to deserving expatriates.
“It is, therefore, heartwarming to note that all the states of the federation, except Yobe and Borno, now have CERPAC production centres,” he remarked.
