Customs Service redeploys 48 Comptrollers in major shake-up

The Comptroller-Gener­al of Customs, Col. Ha­meed Ibrahim Ali (rtd), has approved the redeployment of 48 Comptrollers of the Nige­rian Customs Service.
The redeployment, which is said to be in line with the on­going reforms of the Service, moved Comptroller Madu­gu, M.J. from Sokoto/ Kebbi/ Zamfara to Ogun Command; Comptroller Udoaka, 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 and has been di­vided into three. Team A for Western Axis, B for Northern axis and C for Eastern axis.
According to a statement is­sued on Thursday by the NCS, the teams are to complement the Federal Operations Units in or­der to crackdown vigorously 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 coordinated 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 the Assis­tant Comptrollers of Customs.
 
While effecting these changes, the CGC expressed his determination to 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 called 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.
