LAGOS APRIL 21ST (URHOBOTODAY)- In a major re-jigging of the Service for effective and efficient service delivery, the Comptroller-General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ibrahim Ali (Rtd) has approved the redeployment of 48 Comptrollers of Customs.
A statement signed by Public Relation Officer of Nigeria Custom Service Joseph Attah, made available to Urhobotoday.com disclosed that the redeployment which is in line with the ongoing reforms of the Service moved Comptroller Madugu, M.J from Sokoto/Kebbi/Zamfara to Ogun Command, Comptroller Udo-aka, E.A from Investigation to Oyo/Osun Command and Compt. Isiyaku, K from Tariff and Trade to Port Harcourt 1 among others.
Similarly, the Comptroller-General’s Compliance team has been disbanded and a new team reconstituted. The new Compliance team is divided into three. Team A for Western Axis, B for Northern axis and C for Eastern axis.
They are to complement the Federal Operations Units in order to vigorously crackdown on all forms of smuggling activities nationwide with particular focus on the enforcement of non-importation of rice and vehicles through the land borders.
The new CGC’s Compliance team will be co-ordinated by Comptroller Azarema, A.A who before now has been the Comptroller License and Permit at the NCS HQ. The Axis will be led by Assistant Comptrollers of Customs.
While effecting these changes, the CGC expressed his determination to strategically reposition the Service as a crucial contributor to the success story of the nation.
“Revenue leakages must be blocked; the nation needs all collectable revenue” he said.
He calls on all stakeholders to support the Service by being compliant as well as provide needed information for the Operatives to nip smuggling activities in the bud.
