Immigration Official States Constraints
By D. Ignatius Roberts, Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent
ROBERTSPORT, March 5 (LINA) – An official of the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN), assigned at the Lofa Bridge in Grand Cape Mount County, has said that the lack of a vehicle and communication equipment is creating setbacks in their operations.
BIN Deputy Commander, Samuel Teah, made the statement on Tuesday in an interview with the Liberia News Agency Grand Cape Mount County correspondent.
He said, it is difficult for them to effectively perform their duties in the absence of communication equipment, and a utility vehicle which could be used for long distance patrols.
He said the lack of these supplies causes BIN officers to sometimes trek for hours to conduct patrols.
Meanwhile, the Deputy BIN Commander has commended rural residents for the cooperation they continue to render immigration officers since they took up assignment in the area.
