The Nigeria Customs Service’s spokesperson, comptroller Timi Bomodi, has been transferred from the Abuja headquarters to the Kirikiri Lighter Terminal in Lagos.
In a Saturday interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja, the spokesperson acknowledged his own redeployment.
Other officers, he claimed, had also been transferred to separate commands.
Bomodi expressed his commitment to making improvements to the service in his new position.
However, he declared that up to his official transfer, he would still serve as the service’s spokesperson.
Bomodi stated that “specific area controllers will announce their arrival” after the posting list is made public.
According to NAN, Bomodi was elevated to the position of Comptroller from that of Deputy Comptroller.
After the appointment of three Assistant Comptrollers-General of Customs and the elevation of 1,490 senior officers and support staff including Bomodi, there will be a reorganization of senior officials.
According to NAN, the NCS Comptroller-General, retired Col. Hameed Ali, approved the appointment and redeployment of some management personnel on January 19.
He said that the approval came after part of the service’s management personnel took their statutory retirement.
He said that the new management members’ hiring and redeployment was done to improve the strategic and efficient provision of services.
The NCS is a government organization in charge of customs revenue collection, facilitation of domestic and foreign trade, and anti-smuggling operations.
The Ministry of Finance oversees it
